The Patagonia region of South America is simply amazing.  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, though to paraphrase Mark Twain, the difference seeing it and seeing the pictures is like the difference between lightning and lightning bug.  Every time I took a picture I wished you could zoom out more to fit all of the awesomeness in.


We signed up for an ice trekking expedition – aptly called Big Ice – that took us to watch chunks of the Perito Mereno Glacier break off and fall into the water for a while and then go hike around on the glacier.  The photos tell the whole story…

    T-roy – I use Canon Photostitch, it came with a Canon camera I bought a while back.

    nice pictures! I learned about glaciers recently when I took that geology class a while ago. I am still reading Dune =D
