Day Thirteen - El Calafate

Lovely little tourist town. We got in, found our lovely hostel and booked some ice trekking on Moreno Glacier. Got out there early next morning to find I'll left my camera on overnight and thus flat battery. I was devastated. Luckily Katherine had bought her camera along, so we were still able to get some great pictures. And I had my iPhone with GPS to track our trek and take some photos. The trek was pretty tame, but great experience as this is the only way you can get up close to the glacier, and try to fathom it's enormity.

I'd visited Moreno Glacier on my previous trip, totaly love it. We got to see some spectacular avalanches this time, one in particular, in which an entire section of the face peeled off and came thundering into the lake.
