We ended the day in tiny Franz Joseph. For a small town, it had a pretty good nightlife
Day 37: For the second time we split into two groups, with Jen S., Jen M., Chris, and Adam taking a helicoptor ride for some white-water rafting while Charles, Jason, and Janell went to check out the Franz Joseph Glacier. There are two glaciers on the south island (the other being Fox Glacier) that are quite unusual since they are not in an alpine region. It was pretty cool, but once again, hard to describe without pictures. As for the rafting, it was on a river where only about 100 rafting trips have been taken so far.
We piled in the van and headed back to Christchurch after all the daily activities were over.
