If you look at my flickr photos from the last two years, you will see the huge difference in the glacier. An expert for a French tv crew we met at the viewing platform told us its retreating at 20m per year.
I am going to post some photos and videos taken from a bus. The route was from the city centre out towards Hamilton. Please stick down your thoughts on which urban zone and why. I am a little embarrassed that this is what I chose to do coming home:-s
