Ice Age

Brr it’s getting cold out here!
Franz Josef Glacier

Today we head up through the mountains to the Franz Josef Glacier! Now a glacier for those that don’t know is a large persistent body of ice, usually hundreds to thousands of years old.

Being the adventurous person I am, I choose to try my hand at the sport of ice climbing! Now I have rock climbed many times before but Ice climbing was a first. However, after today I can tell you it will DEFINITELY not be the last!

    Loved this video. This is the kind of life risking adventures you should be showing us every day. However a hike through the woods with German strangers is fine as well. FYI – defiantly and definitely are two totally different words and I think you mean definitely. Not that I’m checking.

    […] Now this was the second time I got to hike on a glacier. The first time was actually last time I was in New Zealand, but instead of hiking I was ice climbing the Franz Josef Glacier. […]
