NZD 12232009

View from Glacier

looking back from our hike, it seems like forever to the bottom – and his is not even 1/2 into it.  I love the U – shaped valley glaciers form.  I love the gray bottom with the river of water meandering through it.  I love the sudden green up the sides.  I also love the small black line of people about 1/3 of the way up towards the left.  I love the layers of mountains in the distance and also remember that all of this was formed by this glacier as well.  It’s humbling to consider the scale and age.image

that's enormous, it always amazes me when islands can have such huge formations and not topple over into the sea! K.
