Six-Years Ago (07-January-2011) — Patagonia

Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 12: Calafate, Argentina to Estancia Lazo, Chile.

This was a travel day, starting out in Argentina and ending up in Chile. For lunch we stopped at an Estancia (sheep ranch). I don’t think we crossed the border yet. We had a demonstration of the sheepdogs herding the sheep, and then one of the sheep getting sheared. That is where wool comes from. After lunch we proceeded to Hosteria Mirador del Payne on Estancia Lazo. A long drive.
