Fox Glacier

During our visit to this town named for it's biggest attraction, we actually didn't go anywhere near a glacier. We arrived late on a beautiful afternoon, and were advised by a local to take advantage of this rare bout of sunshine. Rather than drive to the trailhead to view a glacier that really can be appreciated in any weather, she suggested we ride mountain bikes to a nearby lake to soak up the sunny bliss. Hey lady, whatever you say.

The next morning as we were preparing to head out to see Fox Glacier, we had an abrupt change of plans. A wild idea and a last minute opening on a gorgeous day proved too much to pass up. I think we did a good job making up for it...
