This image transports you to an ice cave - you are peeking out through a keyhole opening that lets you see one of the peaks of New Zealand's Southern Alps. This particular ice cave was part of Fox Glacier. I had a wonderfully chilly time there hiking and exploring the glacier for several hours after being dropped off by helicopter.
Should you ever find yourself in the town of Fox Glacier, I STRONGLY recommend a visit to this sadly, shrinking wonder on New Zealand's South Island.
This image is a view of a partially melted ice tunnel that made up it to the surface of the glacier. Looks to me like a great frozen "Slip & Slide"!
Here you can see me "cooling off" in one of the smaller cracks (crevasses) in the glacier.
I hope your visit here has cooled you off at least a bit! For my southern hemisphere friends, Please bookmark this post & revisit it next January! ;-)
