From a recent trip to Patagonia in South America.
A Guanaco stands on a high ridge in Argentinian Patagonia with Cerro San Lorenzo — 3,706 m (12,159 ft) — in the background.
Guanacos are wild and native South American camelids that roam freely over the pampas of Patagonia. Guanacos are the parent species of the domesticated Llamas. They weigh about 90 kg (200 lbs) and are about 1.2 m (4 ft) at the shoulder. Guanacos often stand on ridges to watch out for their natural predator, Pumas.
Cerro San Lorenzo in The Andes is Patagonia’s 2nd highest peak and sits on the border between Argentina and Chile.
