giant glacier vehicle- holds sixty plus passengers- has six wheel drive - tires at 15 lbs pressure only one of the ones made is outside of Canada - in Antartica....

The small speck below is another one of the glacier vehicle on the road to the glacier "walk around" point at the foot of the glacier's upward slope (helps to give some perspective- it was big)

this was a natural stopping point as we go on to the next place (photo-wise) so enjoy the trip...
