Old fan, Outdoor Wednesday



My Hubby has restored this old Emerson fan. Great job!
Mi marido a restaurado este antiguo ventilador Emerson. ¡Buen trabajo!



It's time for Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer!

These pictures, I took in El Calafate, Santa Cruz Patagonia Argentina.

The Perito Moreno Glacier is a glacier located in the Los Glaciares National Park in the south west of Santa Cruz province, Argentina. It is one of the most important tourist attractions in the Argentine Patagonia.The 250 km2 (97 sq mi) ice formation, and 30 km (19 mi) in length, is one of 48 glaciers fed by the Southern Patagonian Ice Field located in the Andes system. This icefield is the world's third largest reserve of fresh water.The Perito Moreno glacier, located 78 kilometres (48 mi) from El Calafate, was named after the explorer Francisco Moreno, a pioneer who studied the region in the 19th century

El Glaciar Perito Moreno, es un glaciar ubicado en el Parque Nacional Los Glaciares en el sur oeste de la provincia de Santa Cruz, Argentina. Es uno de los más importantes atractivos turísticos de la Patagonia Argentina. La formación de hielo es de 250 km2, y 30 km de longitud, es uno de los 48 glaciares que alimentan el Campo de Hielo Patagónico Sur situado en el Andes. Este Campo de Hielo es la tercera mayor reserva de agua dulce. El glaciar Perito Moreno esta ubicado a 78 kilómetros de El Calafate, fue nombrado asi después de que el explorador Francisco Moreno, un pionero, estudió la región en el siglo XIX.

    I cannot get over the fact that there are glaciers in Argentina! I never realized that, and they are just magnificent! Those pictures look like they came from a book of photos. Excellente, mi amiga!

    Thanks for sharing and Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  4. Honestly, for me in America, I would never even dream there were glaciers in Argentina...only because you're so far south. Hmmmm.

    Fantastic photos.


    My Outdoor Wednesday is flowers with a 'passion'. Come over if you can find time. I'd love your company today.

    And, hope the day treats you well!!!
