The rocks we are sitting on have been washed down the mountain by the glacier and its river.
Today we visited two glaciers on the west coast of the South Island of NZ. They are quite near the coast, and are formed on high mountains. This is a photo of us in front of Franz Josef Glacier. It looks quite far away, we were about 1km from the bottom of the glacier.
There are so many beautiful waterfalls in this part of the world, the mountains catch a lot of rain.
