Happy new year!!! Here’s a couple shots from the Perito Moreno Glacier near El Calafate in Argentine Patagonia. This is one of about seven or eight glaciers on the Argentina side that flow out from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field into large turquoise lakes.

The Perito Moreno glacier is unique because as it flows out from the mountains into Lago Argentino, it smashes directly into a peninsula of land. So, from this peninsula you get this incredible front-and-center view of the snout of the glacier, and you can watch chunks and columns of the glacier crashing into the lake. It’s a huge tourist destination, for good reason!

We’re now in Ushuaia, on Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America. Tomorrow we head out on a six day trek on Isla Navarino – our final adventure of our three month trip!

    1. Hi Ben, fortunately we trekked in Torres del Paine a couple weeks ago, before the fire. We’ve met quite a few people here who are bummed because they can’t go now, and some people who got evacuated while they were there.

      It’s such a bummer… I’ve heard that the fire is on the front side of the range, and I am really hoping that it doesn’t scar the landscape too badly, which would be such a disaster for the park and the tourism economy there!
