Perito Moreno Glacier

Another picture from Argentina, let me introduce you to the magnificent Perito moreno Glacier.
Located in the Los glaciares National Park in Patagonia, it is one of the most touristic attractions of Argentina.
The glacier is HUGE, its terminus is 5 kilometers wide and 60 meters high, as high as a 20 stories building!!!
Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the few glaciers that are still growing, progressing as much as 2 meters per day!
For me it was an unforgettable experience, walking around for hours on the walkways in front of this monster.
If you stay long enough you can witness the fall of some big pieces of ice into the lagoon, the noise of it looks like the thunder and make you feel so small against nature…

On my way to El Chalten

This is the view you can have 2 miles before arriving to the small village of El Chalten in Santa Cruz Province, Argentina.

The village is named Argentina’s Trekking Capital and is famous for it’s Hiking paths and the amazing views of the mount Fitz Roy.

This day on the road, I was lucky enough to have a clear view on the Fitz Roy, which is usually covered by clouds. I parked on the side of the road and wait for the sun to go down, enlightening the sky on its way.
