Great day down here in Puerto Natales. After breakfast, half the group rented bikes and road along the waterfront out to the old slaughterhouse turned museum/swanky hotel for a light lunch and local beer. Everyone really enjoyed walking around the well preserved grounds, nice place! And the food is pretty darn good too! After the ride back to town, we dropped off the bikes and strolled down to the supermarket to stock up on a few snack items for the trip. All in all, we had a great day exploring this cool little town.
Soon we’ll head down to meet up with our local guide and further discuss tomorrow. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a nice ‘send-off’ dinner at Don Jorge. The group is super excited to hit the trail tomorrow. With some luck, the skies will be clear and we’ll enjoy some views of the famous Torres del Paine – the national park’s namesake – tomorrow afternoon. We are off!
