    The only reason people go to Fox Glacier is the overpowerig presence of Mount Cook, Mount Tasman, Fox Glacier, Franz Josef Glacier and all the accompanying stuff of mountains and snow.

At 9.30 we were being kitted out with boots, crampons, waterproofs and a bag to take up - yay we were going! Once the group was ready we walked to the helicopter field where luckily we were given the front row seats which meant the best view! ...

    ... compacted so much that it became ice, and although it's constantly melting (from the warm temperatures so low down) it's also constantly being replenished (because they get lots of snow every year up top). This melting and replenishing cycle means that the glacier is always in motion - apparently it moves about 5-6m each day! It was really interesting hearing the glacier being talked about like that, ...
