Perito Moreno Glacier
Commander Lawrence of the Argentine ship "Chubut" was the one who, in 1873, sponsored the expedition headed by second lieutenant Feilberg to the sources of the Santa Cruz river, the most important river of the Patagonia, after the Negro river.
The trip, that was hard, lasted 19 days and when they were about to give up, second lieutenant Feilberg heard a strange noise and after a short stretch, he saw, with surprise, the ample bluish-grey savannah of an immense lake, whose waves, when breaking and scattering on the sandy shores, produced that wonderful sound. They had discovered the sources of Santa Cruz river in the Eastern margin of the Andean mountain range.
The Argentine Lake was there. It was baptised by the expert Francisco Moreno some years later. The glaciers are the makers of the mystery of this imposing landscape. Perito Moreno is the only glacier in the world that continues growing until the time to break, spectacle that happens approximately every four years. Though they have been periods of up to 15 year with out breaking. And lately it has broken twice at two-year intervals.
