Picture of the Day 23.01.2016
Oh the New Zealand summer...the plan for today was to catch a helicopter onto Franz Josef Glacier and go for a hike. Not only is that the coolest way to reach a glacier, it is also the only way as the lower regions of this glacier are too unstable to safely walk on. Well but the great summer weather didn’t play along. It’s raining and many low hanging clouds make it impossible for the helis to fly. Ok they said they could fly us up there but wouldn’t be able to pick us back up till at least Wednesday. So the only thing left to do was taking a hike along the valley trying to get a view of the glacier. Well you could see some parts of it but it was mostly covered by clouds, especially the higher regions. It’s a real pity, I was hoping for such cool pictures from up there. Well but that’s nature, you just can’t control it and I would just need a lot more time to wait for a great picture. Unfortunately I only have a month and I have to move on to the south. Let’s hope the weather changes.
