A few entries down on this blog, you will see some pictures of someone touching the ice at the foot of Fox Glacier. In the last few weeks, two Australian tourists (brothers) were stood almost exactly there doing precisely the same thing, when several hundred tons of ice peeled off of the face. The results were not good. While the warning signs are not big, nor very explicit, they are there. Its a real shame when people don't read them. Tragic in some cases.
