Patagonia, a region located in Argentina and Chile, is known for its stunning untamed landscape of rugged snow capped peaks and monolithic glaciers that give way to thunderous waterfalls and verdant swaths of rolling terrain. While it has in recent years become a popular destination for climbers, hikers, adventurers and environmentalists alike — The North Face owner Douglas Tompkins has conserved over two million acres of wilderness throughout the region– there is still much to be discovered in this wild, otherworldly destination.
This Wednesday, November 9, 2011 REI Adventures Program Manager Tim Loftus will help shed some light on traveling this vast, larger-than-life place when he hosts, REI Adventures on Patagonia, a free event at the Flagship REI downtown. In his lecture he will discuss his recent hiking trip to Argentina’s Mt. Fitz Roy and Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park and share notes on the geography, flora, fauna, and enjoyable hiking routes he discovered during his travels. If you’ve ever dreamed about adventuring through Patagonia, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about it from someone who has traveled the area extensively and is willing to share his expertise (for free!).
