El Calafate – Perito Moreno

Most glaciers in the world are getting smaller. The Perito Moreno Glacier is a rare exception and continues to grow each year. It is an inspiring site and the scale of it is difficult to comprehend.

A comfortable bus brought us from town to the glacier. A bottle of rum kept us warm and happy.

Every twenty minutes or so we would hear parts of the glacier calve off. We were treated to a few spectacular crashes of ice.

Since my parents were with us I figured I would once again push their comfort zones and take them zip-lining.

El Calafate, the small city and gateway to the glacier, sits on a massive lake with beautiful sunsets.
