One of the many great short hikes along the Haast Pass leads you to the glacier-fed / Rainbow Trout breeding grounds of the Blue Pools. The glacier-fed water in these deep pools is the colour of deep azure blue, and so clear that you can see right to the bottom. Some people have said they've visited these same pools and called them "a dirty grey". I guess I was lucky on this particular day!
