Today, we visited Perito Moreno, a glacier which is accessible by car or bus. We left our hostel at 8.30am and took the bus, about an hour and a half towards the mountains. The glacier is inside Glacier National Park, Argentina. The glacier comes out of the mountains and melts into Lake Argentina. The glacier face was huge, about 60 meter above the water´s surface! The face was 5km wide. Chunks were falling off and crashing into the ice, making a lot of noise! You can walk on land and view the glacier, which we did. You can also get a ticket for a boat which sails 300 meters away from the face, back and forth. We took the boat too. It was soooooo nice, and from that angle, you could really see how huge it really was. It is advancing about 2 meters every day, but it also melts 2 meters everyday, so it is stable for now.
Tomorrow we are going on a glacier cruise. It will take us to 5 other glaciers that you can only see by boat inside Glacier National Park. The beer here is good. To see our pics, go to www.flickr.com/photos/jennromyphotos
