Where Does The Ice On Grey Lake Come From?

Grey Lake is one of numerous glacial lakes cut into the landscape of the southern portion of Patagonia in Chile. Ice from Grey Glacier not only feeds the lake’s waters as it melts but often clogs Grey Lake with icebergs sloughed off as the “glacier calves”. The high elevation and far southern latitude lend a cool climate to this mountain landscape, (Cold Northern extremities of Antarctica). Even in summer, the high temperatures hover around 61 degrees Fahrenheit. And there’s more to this region than spectacular blue-white walls of ice: We’re within Torres del Paine National Park, one of the greatest wilderness reserves on Earth.
