First semester in Santiago

December 4th, 2010

The Andes
The first view of the glacier plus frozen lake.
If you look closely you can see a group of people approaching the glacier below it to the left
Ice, ice and ice. With strange circular holes.
Another expedition coming back from the upper glacier.
On the top, the snow marks the boundaries of where the glacier once were
The lake shore
Patterns in the ice formed by dusty summer winds and dry winters
Fragments of compressed ice would shatter into heptagonal pins when I stepped on them
My fellow explorers heading for the glacier after a lunch break. They can be seen in the snow to the right.
Details from a piece of ice propelled out of the glacier
The two parts of the glacier viewed together
Ice crystals
Our expedition leader, Eduardo. (No, this is not me! I know it's hard to believe, but it's true)
One last view out over the glacier
