Panoramic View of Glacier Eating up Paso Agua Negra Road

At this location the slowly moving ice compound eats a part of the international road between Argentina and Chile every winter. Therefore a caterpillar has to cut through the glacier every spring to free this short stretch of road from its solid winter ice cover.

At the center there are the remains of the lower cut which became a penitentes field. See two images further down zerega's Panoramio photostream about how this is done.
