Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina
Most glaciers worldwide are retreating due to global climate change. The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the only ones in the world that is still advancing and in equilibrium. We had to see it and after leaving Torres Del Paine in Chile, he took a bus to El Calafate, Argentina. El Calafate is a touristy town that relies exclusively upon the Perito Moreno Glacier for its economy. A little town with restaurants, museums, and shopping, we stayed at Hostel Las Manos, which proved affordable for the Patagonia.
The next day we took a bus to Perito Moreno. The drive to the glacier was picturesque and easy. The glacier was amazing!! We sat for hours watching the glacier cleave and fall into the fjord off Lake Argentino. The water is a creamy-blue-green color that is typical of some glacial waters. The huge house-sized pieces of ice falling nearly 600 feet to the water below, creating a boom that can be heard all over the fjord. It was truly amazing, beautiful and memorable.
