Learning To Walk On Ice

At Concha Y Torro
At Concha Y Torro
We awoke the next morning at dawn to board a bus to the 60 meter high Perito Moreno Glacier in Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. It took us about an hour to get to the boat that would take us over to the actual glacier. When we finally reach solid ground with the glacier looming – it looked MUCH bigger than it looked on the boat. I couldn’t believe we were actually about to WALK on this thing, and as we started to strap on crampons, I was getting VERY nervous. Once up on the ice, the view was indescribable – like something out of a movie – and it was a truly humbling experience. After hiking up and down a few hills, and jumping over several “crevasses” we finally got to enjoy a much-deserved scotch served over glacier ice. It was such an invigorating and awe-inspiring experience to stand on top of this monstrous glacier, and hear the roar of hear giant chunks of ice plummet into the waters of Lago Argentino, that I quickly forgot my fears and took in the full experience. We enjoyed one more meal in El Calafate and already begin reminiscing about the trip – we just didn’t ever want it to end!
