Friday Field Foto #87: Cobble beach on Patagonian lake


This week’s Friday Field Foto is from a cobble beach along the shores of Lago Nordenskjold in Parque Nacional Torres del Paine in Chilean Patagonia. I was in this area earlier this year to run a field conference and do some field work and spent a few days to do a little hiking in the national park.

By the way, the beach is at the foot of this:

Ah hah! That’s where the comparable proportions of light and dark cobbles come from.

Happy Friday!
