A Walk on Water

The striking size and phosphorescent blue glow of the Perito Moreno Glacier are astounding as is watching large chunks of ice fall from its massive walls. We hiked along its side and then strapped on crampons before climbing onto its back, first icy and much like a blueberry snow cone, then smooth and gleaming in the sunshine. We trekked for hours, peering into crevasses and crawling through caves.
