The Glaciers National Park is in Calafate Patagonia. The Hielo Continental (ice cap) covers approximately 8000 square miles. The National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Perito Moreno Glacier shown in these photos is 2 miles wide and rises 165 feet above the surface of Lago Argentina. It is a spectacular sight!
Here is the Glacier calving!
Here is more, with a Condor Flying!
The vast majority of non-Southern Amercan toruists come by tour bus, which loses you the oppportunity to drive at leisure all over the park, seeing everything, without a handler and people you don’t know. We flew into Calafate and rented a car and can visit gorgeous Pataglonia on our own. Highly recommend.
How can ice be so beautiful?

Judy, thank you so much. Much appreciate. The environment out here is just glorious! Very hard for me to capture the beauty of the desolate and vast steppe. Cheers to you!
Such dramatic extremes, Patagonia seems incredible in all the pictures I see of her.
Yes, if you can imagine, we were viewing the gaciers in 80 degree weather. Wonderful but not a good sign for our beleagured planet!
That last photo with the small people dramatises the size of the glacier, such a beautiful startling blue
Thank you. I wanted to include the ant people to give perspective of the immensity of these glaciers!
You certainly put it into perspective
Stunning and awe inspiring are what comes to mind. So raw and majestic!

I came back to spend more time looking through these fantastic photographs. I mean wow Cindy they are some of the most amazing – to be that close to the glaciers offers views that most of us will never seen. Your travel is our gift – thank you for sharing. Mary
You are most kind, and yes the glacier was absolutely incredible and the catwork allowed one to walk close to the glacier for miles. It calved about every 30 minutes. Remarkable!
That is so cool, I’ll bet it was a bit of an out-of-body experience!
Oh my goodness, how beautiful! Thank you for posting these
Thank you for appreciating them!
Just BREATHTAKING, aren’t they! 😀 Fae.
Yes indeed!!! CLEAN!!!
It’s going to be end of mine day, however before finish I am reading this impressive paragraph to improve my knowledge.

I had no idea they had glaciers in South America. Learn something new everyday!
It is amazing how we never stop learning, if we want to დდ
