      ... a couple Canadians then fishing and drinking beer. Of course the rain came along and we had to retreat to the tent for cards, but it was overall a successful day.

      The next day we headed out early for Franz. I was ashamed to say as a Canadian it was the first Glacier I have ever seen, but it was amazing. Me and Ian went off to very briefly try soaking in the water and eat some of the floating ice chunks to simply claim that ...
