Argentina - Patagonia! The most amazing place in the world!

Glaciar Upsala and the Andes

 The Glaciers are formed as a result of the snow that accumulates in the top of the Andes and gets compressed by the weight of that snow. At the bottom ice is formed, and that is the glacier. Glaciers grow and at the same time retract as they unfreeze with the heat. The Upsala Glacier is melting faster than it accumulates, so it is retracting, and forming a lake of bright blue water that is still trapped in the middle of the mountains! In a couple of years the glacier will retract so much that the lake will join with another bigger lake (the Argentina lake). Meanwhile, while that small lake is trapped, you need to climb the mountains to see it, and it is the most amazing view that I have ever seen!
