Cerro Castillo panorama

Cerro Castillo, Cerro Castillo Reserva Natural, Chilean Patagonia. Taken in early winter with a dusting of snow covering the scree rock slopes. Notice the small upper glacier once carved out this u-shaped valley (notice the lateral moraine rock piles on the very right side of the photo), and filled up this entire valley with ice. As the glacier receded, it left behind this glacial lake.
