We boarded a bus in PuertoNatales for a 3 hour bus ride into the park..we saw our first condors.. Beauty in motion amongst the skies.. Gliding so gracefully.. Wingspan 6′ or more .. Juanacos roamed the mountainsides.. Grazing.. We were enchanted before exiting the bus . Our first trek was only 4 or 5 miles. The splendor of Patagonia was gently infusing herself within my being. Life is so much simpler on the trail.. Walk .. Inhale.. Breathe.. Feel the power within.. So cool
..after setting up our tents( I was a little frustrated..) After 4 tries I was satisfied…
I do love my new Tarptent.. It feels sturdy and roomy…we decided to climb up to the Torres to see how the afternoon looked upon the ” blue towers”.. It was a bit of a strenuous hour up to the majestic towers .. Entranced we sat for an hour…condors flying overhead.. The blue green waters reflecting the towers..feeling absolute contentment … Back at the campground others readied themselves to rise early to see the sunrise over the Torres del Paine..we too prepared .. I , being the early riser was in charge of making sure we all rise in time…our first night… A goodnight..
