Thursday 7 Jun
Fox and Franz Joseph Glaciers, New Zealand

Mountains, mountains every where....

Off to the Glaciers!

We travelled over the beautiful Haast Pass where we "ooh'd" & "aah'd" around every corner.

We arrived in the early afternoon so took the oppurtunity to walk out to the Fox & Franz Joseph Glaciers - AWESOME. We also took a walk around Lake Matheson from which we took a photo of the most famous view in New Zealand. Mount Tasman 3497m & Mount Cook 3754m, the 2nd tallest & tallest mountains in New Zealand reflected off the lake. As you can imagine... it was jaw dropping stuff yet again. Check out our more recent Fox & Franz Joseph entries for the entire series of jaw dropping pics (of the scenery that is, not us).

Now holding thumbs for good weather for a heli hike....Blue
