Vinson Massif:  Hiking in Torres Del Paine National Park

Fine days are known to be rare in Torres Del Paine National Park.  We enjoyed one today, start to finish.  It was an agreed upon “free day” in which our team members were advised to use the time as they wished.  Most team members went hiking since the weather was so beautiful and since we´d done so much travel by airplane and automobile in the last week.  The hike of the day was around 10 kilometers, one way, gaining over 700 meters in altitude.  This brought many of the team to a viewpoint looking straight onto the Torres -giant granite towers, looming over a picturesque alpine glacier and lake.  The path led through wonderful forests and ultimately up through big jumbles of rock.  Plenty of Andean Condors could be seen circling on thermals, waiting for hikers to stumble.  The gang will meet up in the Hotel Torres bar and restaurant this evening to compare notes on the day and to begin to refocus on Antarctica.  We´ll use tomorrow to return to Punta Arenas and will resume gearing up for the Ice.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
