Tourists Get An Aerial View…

We didn’t have time this trip but if we come this way again there is one certain thing I would love to do, and that is to take a helicopter trip over the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers. On a fine day this would be an exceptional way for someone like me to see these beautiful features of nature up close once again. It’s quickly becoming clear that the track will be too much for wheelchair and it’s way too far for attempting on crutches. In the township we see signs for helicopter tours, on our way in we see a chopper coming in low for a view up the valley. A little later another one is spotted coming down the opposite side of the valley, so tourism appears to be doing ok here, for today at least. We get a look at them, since we are crossing the river, who knows: they probably have a photograph somewhere in heir album of our little car crossing the bridge too.
