      ... back early due to icy track and blowing snow. Hard to imagine that sub-zero day was only a month before: this time it was cloudless and nearly 30 degrees! Needless to say, we quickly reached the tarns and then carried on to the ridge top and the Mueller Hut. With such a perfect day we couldn’t stop there, and went another hour to the summit of Mt.

      Before we knew it the hike was over and we were heading back to the helicopter pad.

      Fox Glacier was our first stop in the mist and rain. We hid our cameras under our coats and hiked up the black and grey river valley to the glacier. The park rangers had the path closed due to some rock slides so we got back in the car and headed ...

      the rocks, to the path we were walking along. We were just waiting
      for a brontosaurus to wander by.

      made it back to our cabin right before the downpour started up again.
