A World of Warm and Cold
Photograph by Annie Griffiths Belt

Sunset warms the face of permanently frozen ice on the Mount Tutoko glacier. At 9,009 feet (2,746 meters), Mt. Tutoko is Fiordland’s tallest peak, standing scarcely ten miles (16 kilometers) inland from the Tasman Sea. Active glaciers grip several peaks in the park, whose 14 fiords and myriad lakes were carved by retreating glaciers some 14,000 years ago.
