Phil, who is leading our first Patagonia Trek of the season, called in from Puerto Natales, Chile this morning with the ‘all’s well’ report.
After a few errands (money exchange and grocery store) in Punta Arenas, the team hopped in the van for the 4hr drive to Natales (5hrs if you stop and say hello to the penguins). They’ll enjoy the rest of the day exploring Natales before heading into the park tomorrow to start their trek in Torres del Paine National Park. First stop tomorrow will be Los Torres (The Towers).
On a side note, he may just bump into IMG Guide Dustin Balderach, and his girlfriend Caroline, who are down there on a trek of their own – small world.
