Travel Photo of the Day: Lago Grey, Torres del Paine, Chile
Torres del Paine National Park in the southern Patagonian region of Chile is one of the most amazing places on earth. The park's almost 600,000 acres of breathtaking glaciers, mountains, lakes, forests, meadows and wooded trails are home to guanacos (a cousin of the llama), Andean condors, grey and red foxes and pumas. Luis took this photo of Lago Grey (Grey Lake) and the surrounding vista a couple of hours after we arrived in the park, early January 2011. The weather changed suddenly and a few minutes later, the entire scene was shrouded in fog and clouds.
