Torres del Paine - Boat Ride to Lago Grey Glacier

Taking the shuttle boat to tour ship

On the 2nd day, we take a boat across the lake to view Glacier Grey up close

The tour boat

Jean and Ken from Kansas

Passing small icebergs

Getting close to Glacier Grey at the far end of the lake

Dawn from IL, the video queen, on the main deck

Cruising by the front edge of glacier for very close views

The glacier field looks like whip-cream
Striated rock shows effect of glaciation

The greater the compaction of ice, the bluer the ice, especially showy on over-cast days

A very nice day on the lake

We lucked out today, the winds were non-existent
