Lago del Desierto
The view from Lago del Desierto is really beautiful and gives another perspective of the park's famous granite peak, Cerro FitzRoy, which was first noted on 2nd March 1877 by Perito Moreno. He named it in hour of Robert FitzRoy who chartered large parts of the Patagonian coast.
Lago del Desierto is a particularly good spot for seeing Patagonia's native flora and fauna, including the red-headed Magellanic woodpecker and the pan del indio, a bright orange fungus.
