Day 3 Fox Glacier



Overcast day without rain. We rolled out of bed and hurried to get out the door to see the glacier in case of rain. Short drive to the car park. The path up to the glacier was an hour or so return. The kids rocked it and didn’t complain one bit until the very end. This was miraculous because it was a fairly steep climb up the path. Another very sad sight…this glacier has retreated as well. It doesn’t seem as bad as Franz Josef but still much further back than it was in 2006. Now we are off to Lake Matheson to NOT see Mt Cook.
