    Don't try to be a hero

    Follow the signs!

    You will find some billboards close to the glacier, with warnings. Follow the adviceS, and do not try to be a hero. This sign says:
    "DANGER ~ NO TRESPASSING
    When ice falls, pieces are thrown volently dozens of meters away. This action produced the death of 32 people between 1968 and 1988."
    I saw the icebreaks, and I can assure the waves they produce are really huge.

    Encontrar?n varios carteles cerca del glaciar, con advertencias. Sigan los consejos, y no traten de hacerse los h?roes. Este anuncio dice:
    "PELIGRO ~ NO PASAR
    Los desprencimientos de hielo producen astillas que son arrojadas con violencia a varias decenas de metros. Entre 1968 y 1988, 32 personas murieron por esta causa."
    Yo vi los desprendimientos, y les puedo asegurar que las olas que producen son realmente enormes.

    Recommendations

    A couple of recommendations: smoking is not allowed at some areas of the National Park; each time you come close to the glaciers, you will find billboards with the warning, and ashtrays where you can leave your cigarette.
    You cannot leave trash inside the National Park: all the waste you have, take it with you and throw it away at El Calafate (the nearest town).

    Un par de recomendaciones:
    fumar está prohibido en algunas zonas del Parque Nacional; cada vez que se aproximen a los glaciares verán anuncios con la advertencia y cenicerops en donde apagar sus cigarrillos.
    No pueden dejar basura dentro del Parque Nacional: todos los residuos que tengan, debarán llevarlos consigo y tirarlos en El Calafate (el pueblo más cercano).

    When you are trekking above the glacier, follow your mountain guides instructions carefully; walk firmly with your legs open, and pay attention to the clefts: they are really deep. Do no hesitate: if you need some help, ask your guides.

    cuando estén caminando por encima del glaciar, sigan atentamente las instrucciones de sus guías de montaña; caminen con firmeza, con las piernas separadas, y presten atención a las grietas: son realmente profundas. No duden en pedir ayuda a los guías si lo necesitan.
