Patagonia is a region comprised of the southern third of Chile and Argentina. Los Glaciares National Park, a world heritage site, is located in southern Argentina. It is best known for its several glaciers, Perito Moreno Glacier being the most prominent. (See the separate gallery on this glacier.) It is also known for its Fitz Roy mountain, outstanding hiking and mountain climbing, and high winds. After visiting Perito Moreno Glacier we traveled to the small outpost of El Chalten located at the north end of Los Glaciares to photograph Fritz Roy and the surrounding area. After viewing this gallery, if you have not done so, be sure to view Patagonia's Torres del Paine gallery and the two glacier galleries.Read More
