Perito Moreno Glacier-Argentina

5 years ago

I`ve always liked snow and snow related landscapes... Snow is not that common on the place where I live, so I have to travel long distances to watch some or, from years to years, sometimes I have the luck to see snow on my homeland. But a glacier is something that I`ve never seen.

This specific glacier can be found in Patagonia, in Argentina and it is one of the most impressive glaciers in the world. It was formed thousand of years ago and it is really impressive, as you can see on the images above. Besides its beauty, it obviously has a major importance in environmental matters, since it represents the third biggest deposit of fresh water in the world.

Everyday, giant blocks of ice fall out of the glacier, but everyday, new parts of ice are formed in the Andes, that is the group of mountains where this glacier has origin. The only problem is that in the last years, the glacier is melting faster than it is being created.

Something that really makes me sad is that this kind of glaciers are something that I don`t know If I will have the chance to visit in the future, since with the global warming they are all disappearing.

What do you think of this kind of scenarios? Would you like to visit this glacier? Have you ever visited a glacier?
