Walking On The Ice.

A diary excerpt from back in the day. Just reminiscing about this magical place lately. I want to go back!

Monday 24th November 2009.

Today I had a magical time on the ice of the might Perito Moreno glacier. I still can’t believe I got to experience this. Myself, B and R did a day trip to the glacier. A short boat ride got us over to the other side of the glacier, and we then got fitted up into crampons. It was time for the ICE! It was a totally surreal experience, with amazing whites and blues and grey colors of the ice. In our little group we had 5 gay texans who were bloody hilarious. They became our photo buddies, and it was so hard to even walk on the ice because we were laughing so hard with the guys. I of course became the clown of the group when I decided to copy the guys and drink some of the glacial water. While being in the push up position my arms gave way and I fell face first into the icy water. I’m so lame, I can’t even hold my own body weight up. Haha. Anyway after the ice walking we had lunch, and got to see some ice ‘calving’ off the glacier. Wow, it was so loud, like thunder. I’d never seen anything like it! We were then taken higher to the main “touristy viewing spot”. It was crowded, but pretty cool to see what we had just walked on. The higher perspective made me realise we had just walked on the tiniest patch of this massive chunk of ice. It was such a damn cool day, I want to do it again!

You felt small on this beast of ice!

    Wow! Love these shots! The last couple of days have been scorchers here (around 43C – 109F) so all that ice and snow seems very far away! Great blog. I will have to have a look at your archives.

    Wow, this is gorgeous place. I never have seen anything like that. Thank You sharing Your photos with us. When seeing Your photos, I just wonder how little my post is when compared with Yours. It shows walking, skiing and much more on a frozen lake is. The best there is that there are road signs on that lake. In the beginning You see our home house, which is by this lake.

    Walking on frozen lake

    Have a good day!
