Southern Icefields
« on: April 08, 2023, 03:22:41 pm »

A very rare scene, deep in the southern Patagonia icefields, what's most amazing to me about these places isn't just the remoteness, but the history contained within. The twisted rock below is home to millions of fossils, and the entire valley has been carved out by a receding glacial icefield. The spectacular hues of the lakes are caused by glacial melt, and the typical fog bank of the western Chilean fjords can be seen tapering off at the edge of the jagged remote mountain range. A total of 10 people visited this section of Patagonia this year, there is no trail, and the desolation is a nagging feature as the terrain is unforgiving. I saw my first Huemul on this trip! A very rare sighting indeed.
