About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

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.

Em: when Bob, Derek, and I were in NZ, we hiked the same glacier!! Your honeymoon pics are delightful and fun especially the bungy jump. I am very happy for you both.
