"We circled around the top of the glacier & had a great close up look, before descending to the valley floor & our first landing.
Dave touched us down very gently, shut down & we got out to wander around. Words and pictures cannot do this place justice!!!!
It really is phenomenal, with cascading waterfalls, crystal clear streams & time locked frozen pools, timeless beauty in every direction from the over hanging glacier, sheer cliff faces, grassy plains snow capped mountains 15-20 minutes of our own private paradise.
