Another day in Franz Josef

Franz Josef Glacier is steep and narrow, shaped like a funnel.

 For those taking a walk to the face of the glacier it is an impressive environment of
caves, seracs and crevasses.

The glacier ice moves down by sliding over rock and is lubricated by the water flowing beneath the glacier.

The ice closer to the surface splits and cracks forming crevasses to depths of 20-30m
