Valle Chacabucco -The New Patagonian National Park

My book - Patagonia Wild is in its final stages and I hope to have photographs completed by early 2015 followed promptly by it's publication.  My goal is to explore and photograph more of spectacular Pumalin National Park, Aerial photographs of the rugged central patagonia, Puma in the New Patagonian National park, more Orca at Peninsula Valdes, Chiloe and Los Lagos region before its publication.

On my 3 month expedition in 2012 to Patagonia, I covered The New Patagonian National Park in Aysén, Torres Del Paine National Park, and the highlight and most challenging being the traverse of the Southern Patagonian Ice cap - A 7-day expedition over the ice. My partner joined me for the first 1/2 of the expedition. Documenting most things with a GoPro camera, we have some wonderful footage. 

After arriving to Santiago on August 29th, Chile, and connecting with a flight to Coyhaique in Central Patagonia, our journey to 'Conservacion Patagonica's' New Patagonia National Park, "Valley Chacabucco" began with a precarious 2 day journey on corrugated gravel roads that slowed us down to only 50 km/ph after a little incident on the ice. The infamous Carretera Austral Route 7 in Chile- The 1240 km dirt-gravel road bends and twists through thick virgin rainforest, past glacial fed rivers and aquamarine lakes, jagged white capped peaks that rise above open valleys and precipitous cliffs with cascading ribbons of waterfalls at every turn.
