Patagonia: Mt. Fitz Roy
Rugged Patagonia offers Himalayan-quality drama in a small package. Just above El Chalten, South America's unofficial trekking capital, rises the jagged silhouette of Mt. Fitz Roy, revered in the world of mountaineering and photographed thousands of times. Art sets off in search of a different and unique view of the peak. En route, he treks through an ancient forest, fords of an icy river, goes under a glacier, and travereses one of the largest ice caps in the world."
