Great cherryripe 2009-08-19 12:36

Hi Susanna
Great close-up. Looks quite scary with the rushing water - guess I don't remember too much of walking on Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand when I was only eight. Love the depth. Did your crappy guide actually explain why the glacier is so black ?

Default To cherryripe: Black

Hi Nikki!
The guide did not explain anything, but the glacier is dirty due to all the rock and debris it carries as it moves along. It some places it is black, and some places even red or yellow due to the different colours of the grit. Some of us sat down and got very black bottoms!!
