Perito Moreno: Meet a 160 meter high ice wall written by Jacob Gowland Jørgensen.

The ice war is raging

The first sound is huge bang. Great things falling. Things that break. Structures that collapse like a scaffolding in an autumn storm. But it is not, it is a massive and huge glacier that runs up from the Andes Mountains, and where the vanguard of the ice meets the meltwater lake that it has created.

Here there is no pleasant creaking sound of freshly fallen snow. Here there is a huge lump of ice of 250 km2 in battle with itself and the surrounding nature, and it is a deeply fascinating sight.
