New Zealand - 2004-11-28 - Franz Josef Glacier Park - Glacier Walk (Page 2)

Almost the entire group from the bus did the full day glacier walk. It was a very expensive activity, but totally worth it. The pictures don't show the true enormity of the glaciers. They also looked quite different from what I expected & from what most everyone thought when we talked about it. For some reason I expected a big sheet of snowy ice. But the glaciers are at times almost gray. The colors change at the different levels (which is shown in some of the pictures). The way the glaciers fill in the area has a lot to do with it as it first fills the side of the mountains carving of rocks as it goes. That is why there is so much rock in and below the glaciers. The rock is also compressed by the glacier giving it a sheet like effect. I also learned that glaciers never recede, they just sometimes melt faster than they move forward. It was a very educational & intensive exercise, but a great time.
