Los Glaciares National Park is located in the southwest part of the southern province of Santa Cruz near the Andes. It was created in 1937 to preserve a large area (600,000 hectares) of continental ice and glaciers. Because of its splendid beauty, its massive glaciers, and the fact that much of the native wildlife is endangered, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. Of all the places I know in the world, Los Glaciares National Park place is special. The imposing, serene atmosphere and the magnificent landscapes make me think of the closeness of God to His entire creation.
