Southern Patagonia Ice Field
Glacier Grey, Patagonia, Chile

Location: Torres Del Paine, Patagonia, Chile

Grey Glacier of the Southern Patagonian Ice field – this site blew my mind. Growing up in tropical Africa, this scene was something so foreign that I stood there, gasping for my next gasp of air while attempting to fathom what was before me.

    Great picture! Even though it is cold, Patagonia is amazing! My favorite part of Patagonia is having a chance to see the penguins! I think everyone should visit Patagonia at least once in their lifetime.

    Is it all hard as ice, or can you walk across it like soft snow?

    Great photo Mark. I’ve not yet been to Patagonia but hope to visit some day. It resembles Alaska.
