The literal translation for the name of this glacier is: Tronador=Thundering. When the chunks of ice break off the glacier laying on top of the mountains it literally makes a thunderous roar. We were lucky enough to see a mini avalanche from the ice breaking off of the glacier. The water at the bottom of the Tronador Glacier in Bariloche is glacial milk – (sediments and minerals that have been released from the ice breaking off the glacier).
This is a rare picture because you “are not allowed” to jump the fence and walk to the Glacial milk. But just like the time I climbed a Greek temple in Italy, rules are meant to be broken, and that certainly wont stop me from taking a peak and saying my foot has been in glacial milk.
