    Pickup at 9AM for the trip to the Moreno glacier which is a sustainable glacier - it grows some years and retreats others but essentially stays the same size over the last century. As we are driving, the typical Patagonian landscape is reminiscent of Alaska or Iceland with wonderful mountains and flowing ranges, mostly devoid of anything other than brush and small plants. You can travel for hours and see nothing but the beautiful landscape, with fences along all of the roads, dividing all of the huge private and public parcels of land. Interesting that farming does not exist due to the lack of rainfall, arid soil and even if the huge reservoirs of glacier water would be utilized, the persistent wind quickly dries out the soil - in short, a lost cause. The raising of cattle and antelopes are also not being done any more in 95% of the cases for the same reasons, the only viable ranches are those that are also being used in the tourist industry – there is a lot of underutilized land. Toward the east there is mining for gold and copper but not here - tourism is the economy. As a comparison- the land mass of Santa Fe, the province we are in is roughly 50% of the size of Italy - about 51K square miles but the population is 290K vs. 60 million in Italy. There is little produced here- everything is imported from central Argentina. The climate and surroundings are subject to quick changes though and as we get within a few miles of the Moreno glacier, you can see a steady change to a wooded forest type environment. Had you closed your eyes for about 20 minutes while driving thru the typical Patagonian landscape and reopened them when arriving in the park, you would think that you had been transplanted into another country. Our guide for the day takes most of the three+ hour walk with us - in 2009, they constructed a series of aluminum walkways linking all of the viewing areas, replacing the small and narrow trails which had existed before (basically one person wide). We take a one hour boat ride to the base of one side of the Moreno glacier (the largest in Argentina) - the glacier is approx. 170 feet deep (underwater to the base rock) and just as tall. We got to see several sections are of the glacier calving while we were there. The shape of the outer perimeter of the glacier looks like it had been cut with a chainsaw - the force of the growing ice and weight of such keep all in proportion - when it falls out of the range, a piece of the ice calves... The glacier has filled the middle of the lake except for a small area connecting the two sections of the lake but as a result, there is a difference in the height of the water table from one side of the glacier to the other of 10-20 feet. On a regular basis, last being in 2013, this small area was completely covered by the glacier during the winter which causes the height of the water table to increase even more significantly until the spring when the force of the lake punches thru another opening in the new ice to reconnect the two sides of the lake. Nature at its best! Interesting factoid - more of southern Chile as opposed to Argentina is covered by the glaciers due to the humidity and rainfall coming off the Pacific Ocean. If you are in southern Chile and want to travel north, in most cases, you need to come across the border to Argentina as there are no north / south roads in that area due to the glaciers.

            Chelsea and I planned to hike up Pilchuck for sunrise, but due to lack of sleep, we decided to hike to Heather Lake, which was totally ok with us. I know a lot of the shots are out of focus. Sorry about that.

              We're back at it. Another Lake James trip in the books. Summer is back and finding time to enjoy the outdoors is becoming less and less attainable as the summers go on. Great friends and timeless memories are what define these trips.

                      Narrated by Stephen Fry. Come on an extraordinary adventure into magical worlds beneath our feet that most of us never see – one where life is lived at an extraordinary intensive pace, where everything we know seems turned on its head. Experience the hidden kingdoms of the Enchanted Forest and the unforgiving desert of the Wild West. From BBC Earth, this is the story of a day in the life of two little heroes: a scorpion mouse and a chipmunk. For each of them this will be a day they never forget. It’s a story of drama, danger and courage, of insight and revelation, a journey to discover and understand a new and fascinating natural history.
