So, as you know from my most recent and very long blog post update thing, we skipped out of Torres del Paine early before we got to see the glacier. This is because we were all dying. And then we were really sad because none of us have seen a glacier before and it sounds awesome. So we decided to book it over to El Calafate in Argentina for a day, to visit Parque Nacional Los Glaciares and see Perito Moreno, one of three glaciers in Patagonia that is actually growing rather than receding (like most glaciers in the world).
Perito Moreno was worth it. The photos below can’t even begin to give you a scope of how big it was, how imposing and powerful, towering with its age (over 2 million years old). I could have spent hours there, watching it creak and groan, waiting to see a chunk fall off—kind of an existential experience, really.
