Beautiful Cerro Torre, with wisps of clouds, gently weaving in and out of its peaks. And down below Torre glacier, which lets out into Laguna Torre. This was our first day in Patagonia, in Los Glaciares National Park, hiking Loma del Pliegue Tumbado. A crystal clear day, treated to a magnificent show of every cloud pattern and variation you could imagine, in the 2 hours we stayed to take pics and enjoy our cold pizza. Patagonia, it feels like just yesterday I was there and now in about 2 months, I will be back again to see you again.

We made it! The last 1,000ft or so trudge up a semi-unstable collection of lose rocky trail, sitting on top of or around slippery packed snow, with patches of ice, made for one last exhausting push up to this prize our eyes would feast upon. The Mirador las Torres hike isn’t necessarily a technically challenging hike (only 11.2 miles roundtrip) as it is one of many elevation changes up and down (around 36,000 steps on our pedometer that day), eventually building to about 3,000ft of elevation change, over many small ups and downs. My right achilles, which started to hurt after some two serious weeks of hiking trails like these, was flaring up the whole time. My buddy made it to the top first with me close behind, so to celebrate, he struck a pose on that rock, as an explorer to first reach a summit would. Seeing the three cuernos of the Torres so up and close like that made all the effort and wear and tear on my body worth it. Just priceless!

After trekking up a steep, snowy, icy trail to the top of Laguna de los Tres, which sits at the base of Cerro Fitzroy, a lovely snow storm rolled in, completely obscuring this beauty. We could just barely make out the outline of the jagged smaller peaks, but the tallest one of Fitzroy was completely gone. If you look closely off on the right, on the second hill, you will see a tiny dot of a figure. That is another hiker we ran into on the way up, so it gives you a little perspective on how tall that deceptively slow rolling hill really is. And then add in that it was completely iced over, making our ascent up it without crampons, a failed attempt, with us having to slide back down on our butts to the bottom. We eventually made it to the top, using more of the cobbled stone section on the side. Not seeing the full grandeur of Fitzroy that close, makes me only want to go back to see her again. Hmmmmm…maybe I just will.

Capturing a time lapse of this sunset for a good 1.5-2 hours, my buddy and I also snapped pics from time to time. You couldn’t have asked for a better setting, with the stunning range of the Paine to the meandering Rio Serrano to the puffy white clouds that continuously rolled in and out the whole evening. As the evening crept in, lights from the hotels and cabins below came alive. And then to pass the time, my buddy and I played a few rounds of Carcassonne on our iPhones, in between picture taking. An all around amazing night.

Me thinks I may be seeing you shortly my beauty…stay tuned.
Gorgeous Cerro Fitzroy standing proudly above the range, with Laguna Capri, off to the right. This was our first day in El Chalten, hiking Loma del Pliegue Tumbado, the trail that half way up goes unmarked up open, snowy hillside, mingled in between thick brambles of trees and brush. It was so packed in some parts, you could barely make out the sky above you as it hung over you in a thick canopy. What an adventure that was getting back. But it sure made for some stunning views like this on the way up!

Heading out in the morning, this was taken near the start of the trailhead to Loma del Pliegue Tombado, near the Visitors and Rangers Center. The sun had risen up just enough, from the mountains behind, to light up the faces of Cerro Fitzroy and Torre and the hills below. If the view was this amazing at ground level, we could not imagine what it was going to look like when were miles into the trail. This was our first hike in El Chalten, and thanks to our amazing host Dardo, he recommended we do this hike if the skies were clear. And boy oh boy was he right. The skies held clear the whole hike up and just in time to eat lunch and take our photos, puffy white clouds dotted the skies. Aside from the blistering high winds, we couldn’t have asked for better weather on our first all-day hike in Patagonia.

This was just one of those days, where one misfortune, turned into the best thing that could have happened to us. We were traveling from Puerto Natales into Torres del Paine, where our hotel was located. It had snowed heavily the night before, so while most of the road in was clear’ish in the morning, the last ten percent of the way there was not. The road became too steep and icy for our tiny little 1.2 liter VW compact to make it up the hill. We were literally too light to get any traction. So we had to take the long way around the park, adding on about 3 hours of travel over bumpy dirt roads. But if it wasn’t for our detour, we would not have been treated to views like this along the way. I am a firm believer in things happening for a reason in life, and this is definitely one of them. And this just goes go to show that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Beautiful Cerro Torre, stood proud, while the white, wispy, whirling clouds, caressed and weaved in and out of its tallest peaks. This was the view we were treated to on our hike back from Laguna Torre, where we sat and ate our lunch, with this, a glacial lake and two glaciers (Grande and Torre) as our backdrop. I had to keep pinching myself and kept repeating in my head “Seriously? Am I really here seeing this with my own two eyes? Is it this mind bending-ly gorgeous or am I dreaming?” I know people say if you lived there or anywhere amazing for that matter, the novelty wears off and becomes normal or boring. I don’t know about you, but for me, so far from the truth. As corny as this may sound, views like this and other stunning vistas elsewhere in the world, energize my soul beyond words and no amount of repeated viewing would ever tire or bore my senses. Keep it coming Patagonia!
