Cerro Torre, Laguna Torres and Four Ducks

This is the beautiful, calm Laguna Torre with Cerro Torre in the background. The colours of the glacier and lake and surrounds were gorgeous and it was a very serene feeling sitting on rocks overlooking this panorama. It was a sight to see the four ducks swimming by across the lake. Magical. We hiked for about 3.5 hours to get up here and the valleys we walked through were just as impressive. We were based in Chalten, the trekking capital of the region and the return day hike was about 8 hours with stops along the way. Wishing I was there again.
Location: Los Glaciares National Park, El Chalten, Patagonia, Argentina
