El Calafate

Day 1

rain 50 °F

Today we took a boat through Glacier National Park. We saw one of the many glaciers named Perito Moreno Glacier. We also walked along several trails that led to fascinating viewpoints of the glacier and had a picnic in front of the glacier too! The ice was shifting at this time of year, so we also got to see some ice breaks! It was a great day.
