MORE FITZROY, MORE SUN, MORE FUN
All 10 members of our Patagonian Icecap Expedition are now all assembled in El Chalten. Still a couple of days before we head out onto our big trip. Today we had another leisurely walk, taking in a wee scramble on the rocks and crags East of the town. This give a wonderful perspective of El Chalten and the main Fitzroy /Cerro Torre mountains. The weather was once again quite unbelievable. Clear skies and hot sun with no winds all day. Even at 7pm the temperatures in town must have been the mid 20's. A great day out with more Condors and many other birds.
