      Galloping, gliding, gorgeous glaciers

      A travel blog entry by graceschulz on Dec 06, 2014

      ... back to Franz Josef, but it has begun to rain, the evil formation of clouds finally catching up with us. We opted to eat lunch in the car prior to braving the weather (to be honest it was barely misting but it seemed bad at the time!) and venturing out to see the last glacier. It was beautiful, if dirtier than fox glacier, but it was also much larger and I think it gains points for that. After our short hike, Ice cream, mars bars, soup and ...

      ... really deep breaths of air.

      Before we knew it the hike was over and we were heading back to the helicopter pad. Poor Mark, he had to ride with another group of people back down the mountain so our helicopter could carry some of the supplies back down to solid ground. Finally back on terra and back in our travel clothes, we went straight to happy hour at The Landing (http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-landing-fr anz-josef-glacier?osq=the+landing) ...

      ... 13km long, Flow rates of up to 4 metres per day have recorded in the upper icefalls of these glaciers, was sad seeing the tree line where the snow receded back in 2008, It was by far the most exhilarating experience of our trip.

      The country side is so spectacular and just when you think it can't get any better, it does!! Today we came across so many motorbike riders and quite a few people on push bikes who are seeing New Zealand the hard way as they carry their sleeping ...

      Climbing a Glacier

      ... was covered in green grass and moss and explained that the glacier actually used to reach that point on the mountain 12 years ago before it started melting so rapidly. It was quite scary to think how much of the glacier would be left in another 12 years time and I felt really grateful to have climbed up it now. There was one point when we were walking and there was a really loud crashing noise which at first I thought was thunder. It was actually a huge ...

      Headed down to the beach for a swim this morning but the waves were ferocious and I didn't feel confident tackling them on my own so we packed up the van and Tom rallied us along the gravel track to Lake Matheson. The lake is famous for reflecting a near perfect image of Aoraki Mt Cook in its still mirror like waters. Sadly today the wind, rain and low cloud gave only the reflection of its bush side vegetation. We walked round it all the same, if only to give ...
