Photo of the Day: The Stunning Icy Walls of Perito Moreno Glacier

Having traveled the world a bit and seen more than a few glaciers along the way, we can whole-heartedly say that few are as imposing and spectacular as mighty Perito Moreno glacier in Los Glaciares National Park near El Calafate, Argentina. We snapped this shot as our boat passed near the foot of the glacier, where it ends in the icy waters of the Lago Argentino… and we so wish we could give you an idea of scale here. As mentioned in this week’s episode, the walls of the glacier rise an awe-inspiring 200 feet above the water! Truly an incredible sight.
