Perito Moreno Glacier

Heading to the park early we wanted to get sunrise photos of Perito Moreno but our day started rough with the fucking yogi bear not letting us in because the ticket people were not there, we said no problem here is our money and give it to them when they arrive but no he was intent on being an arsehole which he did well.

Finally the ticket people turn up and fuck me if they didn't say you will have to ask the yogi bears, re-ask the yogi bears and they said it is up to the ticket people, what a bunch of retards who all need new jobs away from customer service or dealing normally with people.

Finally on our way we still made it but not quite with sunrise pics, never mind the glacier still well worth seeing up so close.

We were riding along quietly enjoying our ride when these other guys came up on our right hand side so I nailed and cut them off before the corner

As the day progressed we heard very loud cracks and bangs followed by large chunks of ice dropping into the water

Enjoying watching and listening for most of the day we felt we got our moneys worth as the park entry fee was very expensive

Read the sign on the right hand side about the people killed
