Approaching on foot

Locking in our coordinates

Heading up the trail

Official visitor center

A quick stretch

So many many burrs

Small glaciers

Lazy horses

About to snack on some berries

Grocery store, stocking... nothing

Meadow with plenty of daisies

Daisies everywhere

Ready for a handout

Approaching our first pedestrian bridge

Waiting patiently

Heading upstream


Patagonian blooms

Gaining elevation

Looking down

Windy pass. It's windy!

Continuing towards Chileno

Tiny stream


Saying hi

Our tent

Not too shabby

Perched on the hillside at Chileno

Top tier of tents

Continuing upwards

More glacial streams

Some blue skies still

Getting greyer


Back to Chileno

Fine wines and boiled pouches
