I just can’t get enough ice in my life! And yet another opportunity arose to get out and have some fun. The Perito Moreno Glacier is massive, and I was surprised to hear that it’s largely considered to be stable – that’d be the first I’ve heard of in a world of dramatically melting ice.
Ancient blue, oh ancient blue, snow from a millennia ago. Free my mind from your depths, release me of my obsession with you.
This trip started with a couple hours on the boardwalks, where the glacier calved, cracked and dropped into the lake. The sounds itself was overwhelming, a tiny glimpse into the incredible power that lies within the ice.
From there we took a boat across the water to a terminus of the glacier, strapped on some crampons and trekked off onto the ice. Again, my newest obsession took hold; form and shape, color and hue, crevice and the purest of pure water pools - I was enthralled.
I love the ice and as I continue onward I’ll be putting as much of it as possible into my travel plans.
