Tour Perito Moreno Glacier in Parque Nacional Perito Moreno
Perito Moreno glacier in Argentine Patagonia has the distinction of being the only glacier in the world to be still growing. Moreno increases because falling snow accumulates faster than it melts. Over time, the snow compresses and gravity and the ice buildup behind the glacier force it down the mountain. The distinctive blue color comes from oxygen trapped in the snow, and the dirt and mud come from the ground and rocks the glacier gathers as it noses its way downward. Page 6.
