Franz Josef Glacier
Today we drove along the West Coast towards Franz Josef Glacier. We expected rain and clouds with very limited views, but at the end of the day the sky broke open to a beautiful spectacle. On one side the ice masses of the glacier and on the other side a sunset-rainbow. A remarkable fact about the glacier is that it used to be accessible for glacier walks over land, but the glacier has receded so far in the past 10 years that now it can only be reached by helicopter. Ironically causing an increase of the emissions that accelerate the receding of the ice in the first place.
