A picture perfect day today!
We had a nice little breakfast, quick stroll around town, exchanged some money, and rubbed Magellan’s foot (it’s a good luck thing).
We loaded up the van at 10am and off we went to the Penguinera (penquinera colony). Most of the penguins were dressed better than our “mountain casual” attire, but they tolerated us just the same. It is molting season so all the little ones are growing up and getting their big penguin feathers. Perfect time to visit.
After chatting with the penguins we loaded up and made our was to Puerto Natales. Natales is a wonderful little tourist friendly jumping off point for all things Patagonia.
Last minute gear check tonight, dinner, then we’re off to officially start trekking tomorrow.
We’re all smiles between the jaw dropping views thus far. Tomorrow we put on the packs.
