    ... they knew how nice and warm the fireplace was. After our stop we continued into Los Glaciares National Park. We got off the bus at one point and took an hour hike along a lake which gave us some distant views of the glacier. We could also examine the surrounding mountains and see the distinctive tree line both at the lower parts, due to the rising and lowering waters, and upper parts where the temperature cools and trees can't ...

    ... back from the face of the glacier. As the sunshine broke through, we sat, watched, ate, dozed and strolled around the site, observing big chunks of ice crashing into the turquoise lake below. It is a truly incredible natural phenomenon, but after three hours, we felt ourselves fading with tiredness (Nadine can barely walk with her chest), and we shamefully headed for the cafe for a bottle of wine before catching the bus home.

    The colours of the sparkling blue ice reflecting the sunlight are remarkable. The scale is impossible to grasp or describe.

    ... height of the water level many metres before it eventually breaks through. Today the ice had covered this area only to perhaps 1 metre and the water eventually formed a tunnel underneath and there was an increase in the flow as it made its way through, sometimes an iceberg would temporarily block the entry and then it would stop. The pressure would eventually push the iceberg through and then it completely broke and all the ice blocking the way was washed away, joining ...

    ... also locks away the history of volcanic eruptions and other natural events, as the ash from an erupting volcano will be locked into the ice at that point in time, and move forward as the glacier forms, so they can also count the number of eruptions, which I thought which pretty amazing. The Perito Morino glacier is also special because it separates 2 lakes, and as it advances every so often it reaches the shore, where the board walks are, ...
