Image Caption: The Patagonian Lakes of Argentinas Los Glacieres National Park (50.0S, 73.0W) occupying the foothills of the southern Andes Mountains along the border with Chile, are some of the most scenic in South America. The range is covered by a permanent ice cap and glaciers. Glacier activity frequently reaches into the lake region causing blockage and impounding of the waters until water pressure causes the glacier to crack with a roar that can be heard for miles.
