Tim has been out and about with his camera, and here are some of our favorite photos he has taken so far this autumn.  May they inspire you as much as they inspire us (and we live here!).

Why visit Patagonia in Autumn?

Patagonia in autumn is like nothing you have seen before, a time when the leaves wave like flames in the sky and the crowds disappear, leaving a barren, sparse landscape dotted with galloping guanacos, towering snow-covered peaks, and beautiful foliage as far as the eye can see. This season draws seasoned and amateur photographers who snap up the colors and the animals with happy DSLR's, revelling in the fact that the fauna are so much more abundant and inquisitive outside of the busy season.

If You Go... 

Be sure to remember your layers, breathable fabrics, good shoes and be prepared for all weather. Our sister blog over at Cascada Expediciones has some fantastic information about each of the seasons and what gear you should bring so make sure you give those a read.

And, just in case you want to binge a bit more on Patagonia, here is a bonus video taken when the explorer and writer, Amyr Klink, visited us at EcoCamp. Enjoy!
