Los Gnomos Lagoon, Queulat National Park, Chile

Los Gnomos Lagoon, terminus of the Enchanted Forest Trail

This is the Los Gnomos Lagoon, a glacier-fed lake at the terminus of the Enchanted Forest Trail in Chilean Patagonia’s remote Queulat National Park. As I posted back in April 2014, it’s a trail that admirably lives up to its name.

If you missed the post, one of the most visited on the site, it’s here; I updated quite a bit of the info today, adding a couple links, eliminating a few dead ones, and tacking on a couple photos, too.

The lagoon is the source of the southern Chile’s Cascada River; it in turn is fed by snow melt and a glacier through dozens of waterfalls that give the park its name.  As I wrote in the post, Queulat, or Queolat as a native Chonos called it, means ‘sound of waterfalls’. Those sounds still echo from time to time.

For the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 751st straight, was snapped on 25 February 2013 in Queulat National Park, near the village of Puyuhuapi, Chile.
