Image Caption: This beautiful glacier-fed lake is located in Southern Argentina and is part of
the Chilean/Argentine national park, Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. The lake
level is approximately 700 feet and two large, Southern Patagonian Ice Field
glaciers reach the lake in its northern and southern arms. On the left the
Perrito Moreno Glacier almost blocks the southern arm while the Upsala Glacier
is calving small pieces of ice into the northern arm from the right. Note the
changes in water color. It is summertime in this scene and melt water from the
glaciers tints the water with a fine powdery blend of rock material known as
glacial flour.
