16. Perito Moreno Glacier

Back Main page Fwd
Of all the things I saw on my first trip to Argentina in 1997, I decided that there was one I wanted to return to and that is the majestic glacier of Perito Moreno, which runs out in Lago Argentino and almost dams one of the arms of the lake. Watching the glacier is a majestic spectacle, particularly if you are lucky to see it calve. (Which I really wasn't this time. I could hear it, but the pieces typically fell that was out of my sight for the moment.)
