Is This for Real?

this is for real

amazing formations

The following day we spent about 7 hours on the catamaran on Lake Argentino.  The National Park is home to 47 glaciers but due to the size of the lake, approximately 1500 km² and the glacial movement it would be impossible to visit all the glaciers. 

The blue in the ice is caused by the refraction of the light and the darker the blue the more compact the ice.

The morning we left, the wind was so strong it could blow an adult man over.
