perito moreno glacier / argentina

This glacier is one of the tourist highlights of argentina and is one of the world natural heritage sites managed by unesco. The glacier originates in the andes at an altitude of almost 3000 meters and extends to lake argenino, which is only 185 meters above sea level. What is amazing to me is that the glacier lies in the same geographical latitude as frankfurt, namely at 50 degrees south.
