Subject: All good at Los Cuernos
I’m in the company of some very happy trekkers right now. We enjoyed a great hike today over to Refugio Los Cuernos. We stayed dry all day and most of the major peaks were out of the clouds. First we passed Monte Almirante Nieto, then Los Cuernos del Paine, and finally got our eyes on Cerro Paine Grande. All the while keeping great views of Lago Nordenskod on the other side of the trail. Just a gorgeous day. We walked from one amazing view to another. Very big smiles the whole day, especially since the goretex stayed in the packs!
Now we are sitting around the table at the refugio swapping stories and photos. The local beer and wine is already at work curing sore feet as we watch condors and clouds swirl around the Cuernos. Another amazing day in Patagonia.
