SENO EYRE FJORD, CHILE

We have left Chile's Lake District, where most of the country's 55 active volcanoes are located, and we have cruised through the Seno Eyre Fjord. Looking ahead, through the mist and rain, we are hoping for some good weather to view the Pio XI Glacier of Southern Patagonia.

Later in the morning the weather cleared and the scenery seemed even more beautiful! I hope these few pictures are worth a thousand words- we have been educated extensively and well about glaciers by an onboard Naturalist lecturer, all of which I would love to share- maybe another time!

The ship's crew took a small boat closer to the Glacier and brought back some glacial ice - who knows how long ago it was formed?
