This is Estancia Cerro Guido. It is on the border of Chile's Torres del Paine National Park. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torres_del_Paine_National_Park
Our hiking group spent two nights here, including the night of the US election.
The estancia covers 250,00 acres and has 50,000 sheep and 2,000 cattle. The shearing barn has shearing equipment that was originally steam-powered. The steam engine is on display with other equipment of historical interest. I wish I'd had time for a panorama of that area.
When the weather is good, the views are fantastic. When I took this, clouds were obscuring the upper half of the Paine range.
The yellow areas at the right end of the picture are not artifacts. They're caused by sunlight shining through the trees behind the camera.
