|Hiking Franz Josef Glacier. It took us half a day to hike the glacier behind us.|
Blue blue blue. You really can't see it in the photos, but where it was coldest the ice was bright blue and quite breathtaking.Cracks and caves that change with the rain and the shifts weekly.
We really weren't 'ice-climbing' but there were a few cheezy attempts.
Jim is fighting like mad to protect the glacier from disappearing to the hole in the ozone layer, or something like that. There really is a hole above us right now in NZ, and the sun-screen crazy lady I always am is officially over the top. cant help it.
