Lago Grey & Glaciar Grey
|Return to South America gallery Homepage
Like an alien landscape, Lago Grey stretches miles in front of Grey Glacier. At its foot is a moonscape of a beach, nothing but pebbles for at least a mile in length. As you walk out on it, what seems like a small rise just ahead turns into a ten foot wall a thousand feet away. It is stunningly beautiful even on a cloudy day where low clouds hug the lake. Icebergs that appear to be right ahead turn out to be to be spectacular formations bigger than houses.
|The trail to Lago Grey begins with a bridge that no more than six people at once may walk on:|
|The trail climbs up a small ridge and then descends to the beach:|
