One of the only stable (not getting smaller) glaciers in the world is the Perito Moreno glacier, that happens to be just an hour from where we lodge… (maybe that’s why we’re there…)
The other really cool thing about this glacier is that it ends in a lake and it continuously calves (blocks of ice breaks from the glacier into the water – it is how icebergs are born).
We get there really early (at 10.00 and it’s barely day) and so we are the first “tourists” (in “” bacause the real tourists get there by noon with guides etc…
The morning hours are really cool, I mean cold! And cool! Everything is quite and we can ear the ice crack and twist under it’s own weight and from time to time a big block falls into the lake, a real spectacle! (my geographer heart is going nuts ;-) )
