Fox Glacier
Franz Jozef Glacier. The location of this and also Fox Glacier is very unique, so close to sea and reaching into subtropical rainforest. Franz Jozef Glacier. Roll 'm up Lake Matheson, also called Mirror Lake. On a clear day you can see Mount Cook, New Zealands' highest mountain, reflection in the water. But not today. Lake Matheson. Lake Matheson. Climbing up Fox Glacier. The weather wasn't too good. Heavy rain cold and windy, but still a great experience. Climbing Fox Glacier. Because of the heavy rain, fast streaming mudstreams where coming down the mountain. With mud up to our knees we had to cross these streams. Fox Glacier, up close and not so personal. In the afternoon the heavy rain had stopped and the waterlevel was down. Melting blocks of ice are all that remain. Actually the glacier becomes about 1 meter shorter every day.
