These two gentleman make up half of the ranger staff at Bernardo O’Higgins National Park in Chilean Patagonia, the country’s largest and least-visited.
This is at Puerto Toro, the only dock in the park, located about a kilometer away from an overlook near the base of the Serrano Glacier where besides gawking and marveling at a glacier that’s in rapid decline, you can also sip cool glacial run-off.
This photo is from The Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers: a 40 Photo Tour Through Chile’s Last Hope Sound, a post published in August 2014, one of the site’s most popular. Someone visited and left a comment today, prompting a memory of my brief conversation with these gentleman. If you missed it, do check it out. It features four short videos too, from one of the most beautiful corners of the world I’ve ever seen.
Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 1,070th straight, was snapped in February 2013.
