When the Cloud Lifted – Pic du Jour

At the terminus of the Enchanted Forest Trail. Seriously. Queulat National Park, Patagonia, Chile

This is what you’ll find at the terminus of the Enchanted Forest Trail in Queulat National Park in Chilean Patagonia: a pristine ice-fed lagoon that is the source of the Cascada River, an area of such sublime beauty that it continues to inspire recurring dreams. And I didn’t even know it was there until the cloud that shrouded it lifted about a half hour earlier.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge asked for something grand, a scene’s ‘wow factor’. When this scene emerged from behind a veil of fog, ‘wow’ was the only word that I managed. Then just silence.

The park is on the Carretera Austral, a highway that traverses Chile’s southern Patagonian reaches, near Puyuhuapi. A more detailed post on the aptly named trail coming soon.
