This is the face of the Perito Moreno Glacier in patagonian Argentina. I caught a small ferry out onto the lake to get a close view of how the ice towers over the water by about 60 meters. The glacier below the water stretches down approximately 180 meters. Its HUGE! When the ice falls off the glacier into the lake it can make a very large wave that is very dangerous to boats on the lake if they get too close to the glacier, so I was quite happy that we kept a safe distance.
