Join us in this ongoing series of photo galleries as GreatOutdoors.com showcases photographer Art Wolfe's world wide expeditions as he films his PBS series, Travels to the Edge with Art Wolfe.

In this episode of Travels to the Edge with Art Wolfe, Art  travels to rugged Patagonia, where this surreal landscape 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 and iconic in the world of mountaineering and photographed thousands of times. Art sets off in search of a different view of the peak. En route, he treks through an ancient forest, fords an icy river, goes under a glacier and traverses one of the largest ice caps in the world. See Art's video introduction to this program.
