Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 13: Estancia Lazo to Hosteria Lago Grey.

We stopped for a few minutes at the entrance to Torres del Paines National Park while our guide paid the entrance fee. There were a number of Guanaco (South American Camels) milling around. All of a sudden two males started chasing each other. I caught this one as it ran right through our group.
