Spring mists – memories of Franz Josef Glacier

It is a chilly Spring day. We had a huge downpour last night and the rain is continuing to soak everything steadily this morning. Since the ground is still so warm from the high temperatures we have had in the past week, a fog is billowing from the ground and filling our little valley in a thick mist.

This reminds me of a trip I took to New Zealand’s Franz Josef glacier a few years ago.

Rainy days can be happy days.
