9. Haast Pass/ Blue Pools
as we got closer to these blue pools, i found myself asking Jesus to part the clouds so the sun could shine, believing that would help illuminate the blue of the water. in reality, it was the clouds that provided the filter so the beautiful blue could be seen. this moment, a cloud rolled over so I could see without glare. I found myself laughing at His love… He heard me, but He knew better. He always knows better.
A short 15-20 minute hike will get you this view over a suspension bridge. The colours change according to the weather and the amount of light that reflects into this water, so again, weather-permitting!
