    ... doesn't cost $700) and we both began to doubt our earlier decision not to go. Then I remembered my Mum had given me an extremely generous early birthday present for our trip, so we decided that the flight could be my birthday present. Dilemma solved! Thank you Mum :-)

    Called in to the helicopter booking office when we got to town and they had had some cancellations, and had a flight we could potentially go on, subject to our weight being compatible with ...

Back to the motel and food from the Chinese restaurant next door, ready for kayaking next ...

Moulins are basically like a glacier's plumbing system, taking water from the surface down into the depths, sometimes even exiting out into the sea... and more often than not, these moulins create glacier caves. Ooooooooo. So we saw lots of cool creations in the glacier, such caves, ice pools, weird archways... so of course, lots of cool photo opportunities!
