Perito Moreno covers an area of 250 square kilometres and is roughly 30 km long. The glacier is one of 48 fed by the Southern Patagonian Ice Field located in the Andes system (which Argentina shares with Chile). This icefield is the world’s third largest reserve of fresh water.
The terminus of the glacier is 5 kilometres wide. It has an average height of 74 metres above the surface of the water of Lake Argentino, in Argentina. It has a total ice depth of 170 metres. Bloody amazing if you ask me. This photo of the Perito Moreno Glacier has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 15th of August 2012.
