Franz Joseph Glacier

This place was incredible! We were so lucky because the day before we did the climb it was pouring rain, I mean pouring and they still do the trips. I was still very cold, and actually almost broke the camera because I got it so wet but it was worth it!

We started the day at 10:00 am and didn't get back until 6:30 pm. We were beat! It was still cold and wet but awesome nonetheless. The views were spectacular!

If you look close, we hiked in from where you see that river begin way off in the distance. I think all in all the whole trip was about 8 miles and about 1800 ft elevation.

Beth and Blaine: It looks like you were on an episode of Survivorman! Going from this to a Chinese city will be quite a change. Be sure to try the lotus root cooked in honey. Love, Michigan Dad
