Day 3: A Room with a View
Swipe left to watch us set up camp!
We set up camp above the shores of Viedma Lake, the gentle rolls of the lake and the thunderous sounds of glaciers and icebergs calving providing a soundtrack to our evening. The lake provided a fresh source of ice cold water. At night, our sheltered campsite, surrounded by trees, protected us from the cold Patagonian winds

The tiny trees will tell just how big those chuncks of ice really are...

The Southern Patagonia Icefield feeds the glaciers that fall into the Chilean fjords. It is the second largest ice field apart from those on the poles and currently covers an area of over 12000 sq km.

Day 3: Sunset on Viedma Lake
Another charismatic glacier looms on the horizon as we fill water bottles for dinner. As we boiled the glacier water to fill our Mountain Meals, we could hear the thundering roar of the icebergs and glacier calving in the distance.

Day 3: Arrival to Viedma Lake (and the moment I fell in love with glaciers)
Finally, after a grueling 3 hour descent, grabbing into tree branches for balance and climbing down rock walls (note the lack of photos taken during this part of the trail, which is labeled as “damaged” on our trail map), we arrived to our campsite - a lakefront sheltered area with a view of Viedma glacier and her icebergs. Viedma glacier is one of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field’s 48 outlet glaciers, feeding into Lake Viedma. This ice berg is one of many that calved off of Viedma’s 2km wise glacier terminus.

Day 3: Into the Glacier Valley
Please swipe left to see the full effect of standing on a precipice.
We had climbed straight up gravel and rocks, our footing unsure. Any wrong move and that person, and all those below them on the mountainside, would fall. We were making the final turn around the Cerro Huemul, up and over into the Glacier Viedma valley below. A two hour descent awaited us ahead. But here, we were on top of the world. The Southern Patagonian Ice Field stretched behind us, and below a crystallized blue glacial lake with tiny white specks that would soon loom large as icebergs.

#ods is kicking it up a notch this semester. This weekend and next are #iceclimbing, then on to avalanche theory, glacier travel, and mountaineering. All this ends with a traverse of the #juneauicefield in May. Beyond that, the goals are #denali, #brooksrange, and the #patagoniaicefield. Gotta learn to downhill ski first, though--#terrifying!

Day 3: The Southern Patagonian Ice Field
Today we were lucky with the weather. The Ice Field that was obscured by grey, low hanging clouds yesterday became clear today, with blue skies illuminating ice for as far as we could see. White snow covered mountains emerge from the distance. I can’t help but wonder what unexplored land lies behind them.

Day 4: The Southern Patagonian Ice Field
After spending the night in a valley, we returned to the rocky ascents and descents bordering the Southern Patagonia Ice Field. The Southern Patagonian Ice Field is the third largest contiguous body of ice in the world, following Antarctica and Greenland and covering an area of approximately 13,00 km squared. It’s so large that parts of it are still unexplored (next year’s adventure?) and its border between Chile and Argentina is contested.
