A better view of the Tasman Glacier from the Tasman Lake Viewpoint

Hard to believe that it is New Zealand’s largest glacier. The Tasman Glacier is over 25km in length, up to 4km’s wide, and at its thickest part, 600 meters deep. That’s some serious amount of ice (unfortunately covered in a lot of dirt so only the front edge where it breaks off into the lake is immediately recognisable)

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
