Finally we round a corner, it looks like we’ve made it – the trees have gone, it’s just grass and a bulge in front of us. I’m videoing as we emerge into the open, we’re not sure but we think we’re here – we’re certainly over half way according to the GPS. The view is – well, it’s cloud – and our elation at reaching the top is well concealed. And there’s no sign of Arnaud either.

Conditions were absolutely perfect at the top with cracker views of the Glacier. The fog was still present, covering the terminal face, but the views over the blanket of cloud were somewhat ethereal. We could only imagine what they would be like looking out towards the coast in the absence of the cloud.

The reason for the waterproof footwear is that there’s ankle-deep, freezing water that you have to walk through in the tunnel. I had brought flip flops for the tunnel since my hiking shoes aren’t waterproof, and I only made it about a minute into the tunnel before I decided it wasn’t worth it because my feet were cold to the point of stinging. I spoke to a few other people who went in far enough to see a few glow worms and they said it was about 1.5-2 mins into the tunnel that they saw them. They said there may have been more further in the tunnel but they didn’t keep going because the water was too cold to continue walking in.

A nice short walk to a tiny pond full little animals: ducklings and pretty birdies. One might pass the pond in 5 seconds, but we really enjoy sitting here enjoying our snacks, the views and the birdies. 一个平凡又不平凡的小湖,在美景与小鸟的陪伴下吃个上午茶。这里也有各类青苔,细心观赏会有惊喜噢。

Since can't do skydiving today due to cloudy weather, we did a simple walk for the Franz Josef Glacier. 天气不佳没机会跳伞,到冰川走一走。

ending with “breath-takingly insane” views of the Franz Josef glacier. As you can see we soon ditched the cool weather and rain gear as we had a stunning day up the valley and at the glacier. This was a real walk in the wilderness and it seems with every new adventure we find a new favourite walk – our latest Roberts Point Track – insane and loved it! Ouch – just pinched myself and nope I really do live here 🙂

An oldy but a goodie, one of our favourite walks is Canavans Knob, a short distance from Franz Josef. We wander up through the forest to enjoy a grove of rata trees at the top of the granite outcrop, the sea and river to one side, and up the Waiho River to the glacier and Southern Alps Kā Tiritiri o te Moana from the seat at the top.
