The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of very few glaciers around the world that is growing.  Thousands of visitors visit the major tourist attraction everyday, most hoping to catch a glimpse of the thundering calving glaciers.  Within a couple of hours, we saw a handful of small pieces collapse into the water (see center of photo).  There was, apparently a major calving a week after our visit as seen here: http://www.theguardian.com/world/video/2016/mar/10/part-of-perito-moreno-glacier-collapses-video
