Exploring Patagonia

Today I should be in Patagonia. I am writing this before we leave.We are on schedule to view the Perita Merino Glacier about now. It is located in the Los Glaciares National Park in southwest Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. It is one of the few glaciers according to Wikipedia that is stable, accumulating as much ice as it loses each year. I don’t know how current the information is.

My daughter was excited about seeing the Magellanic penguins. I find them fascinating as they waddle in their little tuxedos.


Earlier in our trip we were scheduled for hikes near the Andes Mountains in Torres Del Paines. The area is noted for its breath taking scenery and terrible weather that can change rapidly. We’ve packed rain gear.
