I’m not into trekking for trekking’s sake, but the trails in Patagonia are an exception as they are so naturally beautiful, well laid-out and have stunning scenery. In this photo, Ben and I were taking a remedial hike up to Lago Toro a few days after carrying crushing loads down from The Southern Patagonia Ice Cap. The peak in the background is Cerro Torre and you can get a good idea of what makes it so difficult to climb – the weather moves in from the Pacific Ocean to the west (left) and slams into the towers with high winds, moisture and clouds. While we were having a nice sunny outing in the valley below, it would be pure misery to be up on the spires on a day like this. And this isn’t even a very bad day!
