Patagonia. The name conjures images of impenetrable wilderness; rugged and daunting. It is a huge area encompassing parts of southern Chile and Argentina that’s divided by countless channels, fjords, ice-fields, glaciers and the southern end of the mighty Andes mountains, making large parts of the region quite inaccessible. The wind is a dominating factor in Patagonia: through the course of millions of years, it has determined where forests grow, where the glaciers flow and how the vegetation is shaped. All these elements make Patagonia a remote and wild region that is fascinating, awe-inspiring and often bewildering.

Please read the two-part series from my Travel Journal about my trip through Patagonia: Part I and Part II. I took so many pictures during my trip through Patagonia that I thought it would be a great idea to add a photo essay to complement the two previous posts. Enjoy the pics of this magnificent region!
