No, there is a river flowing in between the road and the glacier out there. Though it looks near, its actually a bit of climb to get there, subject to your cross the river. Yes, it was quite cold too, around 8 degrees and a strong breeze even at 12.30 pm. This is the only place I pulled out a sweater to keep myself a bit warmer. Yes. Thats a very nice pic. Was the stream/River too frozen?
