A self-avoiding walk in a graph is a path that visits each vertex at most once. Given an infinite, vertex-transitive graph, we are interested in the following questions:

1. How does the number of length-n self-avoiding walks started at the origin grow as a function of n?

2. What does a typical length-n self-avoiding walk look like?

In this talk, I will show how these questions can be addressed for certain nonamenable graphs, with emphasis on the product T x Z of a 3-regular tree T with the integers Z.
