This is a challenging trail, the sign says. People have died hiking it. They do not lie. It is strenuous in parts, and dangerously slippery off and on.

New Zealand must have a suspension footbridge engineering division!

Viewing platform at end of trail. Franz Josef glacier. It is receding, like most glaciers today.

On the way back, I saw lots of rocks floating down the river. Rocks?? So I picked one up to take home. Pure, crystal clear glacial ice, probably hundreds of years old. Tasted great!
