We drove to the car park arriving at 8:45, well before the crowds. It was cold at that time (3 deg C) but great to be with only a handful of other people (also the car park is not very big so the earlier the better). We only had time to do the short walk to the foot of the glacier, but it was not too strenuous and what a reward. The view of the glacier and small lake was stupendous. If only we had had the time to do the longer walk - next time perhaps. A must sight to see in the park.
