Glaciers and Icebergs, Oh My!

A boat ride across Lago Pehoe, in front of the hotel, took us to a lovely valley and a hike along iceberg-filled Lago Grey to Grey Glacier, one of the "ends" of the world's third largest sheet of ice, the Southern Patagonia Ice cap.

Enjoying our boat trip back down Lago Grey after hiking eight miles up to the glacier.  I'm not sure those life jackets would have done much good if we'd fallen into that literally ice cold water.
