The trail to the Franz Josef Glacier

The day was very cloudy and overcast, if fact is was going to rain. I was walking toward the glacier which is in the very center of the picture. This really shows the scale of the valley with the tall walls. Years ago that whole valley was glacier. This is how far it has retreated.
