Supliment to last post

This is a picture of the bush we had to drive through to and from the glaciers. We noticed a caution sign on the side of the road which read, "caution searchers." We had no idea what they were searching for, maybe pot holes in the road, but there were at about three different areas a person on each side of the road, walking at rather fast paces. We didn't learn for a couple of days later when some tourist hiking in that area had found a car in the brush 800 meters up a gravel road from this highway 6. They thought nothing of it until they were at their motel that night and heard of a missing women. She was found 10 days after she went missing.

People at Fox Glacier. Kind of small next to the glacier's size. I presume they had learned to stay away. There is great pressure behind the glacier and it can just explode we are told. They claim to be the fastest moving glaciers in the world too.
