LAST DAYS IN EL CHALTEN
Sadly my time in El Chalten has come to an end. The Los Glaciers National Park in Patagonia is a wonderful place to be and over the last 3 weeks we've seen some amazing scenery. Some great folk to be guiding, 9 days on the Southern Patagonian Icecap with a few days post expedition to chill out and wander about on the many trails in the area. On Monday Kriston and Stewart joining me for a day up to Lago Torre. It was lovely and sunny but cloud sat on Cerro Torre. On Tuesday the rest of the group had a short walk up to the crags to the East of the town. We were hoping to photograph the Condors but they weren't flying. We did get a great 3 hours watching a pair sitting around on their ledge.
