Perito Moreno

Glacier

We arrived at the entrance to the park at 8:00 AM, opening time,

and had to drive another 25

minutes to the glacier which

still had a sliver

of morning light hovering above it.

  I totally missed the calving face

of the glacier but then it reemerged

 to the surface unexpectedly.

 

This is the location where the glacier intersects Lago Argentino to the north and another lake to the south.

 

  

   

  

   

The south lake

will fill with

glacial water

more quickly

than Lago Argentino and every several

years, an ice cave will be created when the south lake breaks through to Lago Argentino.

  It really was a pretty miserable, windy, cold morning but at least there was a sliver of light to play with.
