A conversation between the gods of Awe and Splendour.
"Ok, listen up. We have this couple who have been biking north to south through the Americas. They are beginning to think they have seen it all; mountains, snow, salt plains, rivers, deserts, extreme weather, seas, lakes, canyons, forests, high plateaus, lowlands, etc., etc. What do we have next for them?
"Well, they are heading toward Torres del Paine".
"True. But as good as that is it is just more of the same. No, we need something they haven't seen before. Something....spectacular....beautiful.....grand...."
"Ah. It's going to be just fine. Look where they are going next."
"They are off to.... the Perito Merino Glacier....."
I was beginning to wonder where this journey could go next. Not geographically, but in the sense of what could produce the sense of wonder that I had been experiencing on an almost daily basis for some weeks now. The Perito Moreno glacier is where we went; it did not dissapoint.
The gods were correct. It was spectacular, beautiful and grand.
Remember, that is a wall of ice over 250' tall.
For scale....see below.
