The Patagonia trekking crew made the drive from Puerto Natales this morning to the Torres del Paine National Park. They took full advantage of the nice weather and boogied right up to the tower lookout. Jonathan fired off a photo this afternoon of the group in front of the towers that the park is named after. Weather in Patagonia can be shaky from time to time and getting a clear view of the towers isn’t a certain thing, but they lucked out today. They are all settled in at Refugio Chileno for the night. Today had some pretty good elevation gain on the trail and I’m sure it’ll be time to put the head on the pillow early.
In another part of Patagonia, IMG Guide Charlotte Austin has met her private trekking group in Calafate, Argentina. All duffel bags have arrived in country and the team is ready to start a great trip. They’ve got some fun adventures planned for their trip which will include a visit to Perito Moreno glacier tomorrow, a few days of trekking in Chalten around the Fitz Roy Massif and then polish the trip off with a 4-day trek of the Huemul Circuit. This is going to be a fun one, so follow along!
