Viewing Post for: Patagonia & Wine

Date: Sunday, January 11
Location: El Chalten. Cerro Torre

The day dawn cold and snowy and continued that way. We hiked up a long, beautiful valley ending at a lake with a glacier calving at its head. We could not see much above the base of the glacier. Somewhere up there was the spectacular tower with its famous mushroom top of Cerro Torre. It was cold and windy standing on the sandy morraine so we did not stay long. We returned the way we came in about 6.5 hours.

Tomorrow we drive for Chili.
