El glaciar Perito Moreno nace en el Hielo Patagónico Sur, una extensión helada entre Argentina y Chile, y desemboca en el lado sur del Lago Argentino, el más grande del país. El Perito Moreno alcanza en algunos puntos los setenta metros de altura y tiene un frente de cinco kilómetros.

Patrimonio de la Humanidad desde 1981.

The Perito Moreno Glacier slowly makes its way down to the lower ground of Argentino Lake. At its end the Perito Moreno Glacier has an average thickness of 170m (558ft) with 74m (240ft) visible above the water line of the lake. With over 250 km2 (97 sq mi) of ice the glacier spans 30 km (19 mi) in length and a width of 5km at its terminus. Since 1968 rupturing ice has taken the lives of 32 people who were hit by flying ice. One of 48 glaciers that form part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, the high altitude field has a total area of 12,363 km2 (4,773 sq mi) of ice.

Nos acercamos al Perito Moreno a la hora del amanecer. Quedaba lejos pero .... su imagen era espectacular.

 

POEMA:

No fue la aurora. Fue que, de repente,

los pulsos rebosaron de las venas.

Fue que las manos se sintieron llenas

de una callada claridad naciente.

 

Fue que en el corazón brotó, impaciente,

un desusado pulso de azucenas.

Fue que la sombra se deshizo, apenas,

cuando la luz la desbordó en torrente.

 

Fue la rosa del sol naciendo, erguida,

como una voz, de pronto, en las montañas.

Fue el cielo, el aire, el cántico, la vida.

 

No pudo ser el alba silenciosa.

Fue el amor despertando en mis entrañas

como una inmensa mano poderosa

 

Ante esta presencia en contados minutos la superficie de este campo de hielo ,tercero en importancia en el mundo, hace que nuestros cinco sentidos se vean aplanados por el silencio , la movilidad…Y de repente el estrépito del hielo al caer…Se considera en octavo lugar entre, las Maravillas del Mundo. Nos sorprende desde siempre desde sus pasarelas ..Nos apasiona por su inmensa belleza y su indiscutida majestuosidad. Es simplemente inolvidable!!
