Mobile Uploads: The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the largest and most accessible glaciers in Patagonia. Just 80k outside of El Calafate, Argentina, most people experience the glacier via a simple day bus trip by viewing the glacier from a series of balconies. As touristy as it gets durring the day, it is certainly
