Global Glimpses: Perito Moreno, Argentina

 

In April 2007, I took a ten-day solo trip through Patagonia, in southern Chile and Argentina. Among the highlights was a visit to mighty Perito Moreno, the humongous glacier just outside the town of Calafate – it’s 30 km long and 4.5 km wide and encompasses 250 km2.

As I stood watching giant blocks of ice break off the glacier and splash into the water below accompanied by a roar, I was speechless with awe. It was no doubt one of the most powerful displays of Mother Nature I had ever seen.
