Torres Del Paine: Elias and Team Arrive in Puerto Natales

Greetings from the land of the "big legged ones", (term used by Magellan to refer to the natives of the Australmost part of the American continent during the Spanish expedition of 1519 trying to reach Asia going west) aka Patagonia. We are currently in Puerto Natales, resting in our hotel right across from the agitated waters of the "Última Esperanza" (last hope) fjord. Our bodies are tired from 24 hours of international traveling, but after a quick layover in the southern hub that Punta Arenas is for the region, we drove to the gateway of Torres del Paine National Park. The views of the salt water meeting the towering mountains are astonishing, and the feel of being in our antipodes' "last frontier" is very real. Sheep farms gave way to wilder land populated by foxes and "ñandúes" (ostrich like birds) and the human shelters are getting smaller and further apart. Everyone is very excited for the adventure we start tomorrow. We will be posting next from the trails of our circuit... in the mean time, sit back and imagine what being in summer, surrounded by friends, good food and better landscape would be right now; well, we're there!

Hey!  Great picture.  So glad everyone made it to the trailhead and hoping you all have your luggage too.  Sun today in Richmond after nonstop rain since your departure.  More rain expected tomorrow - we are very envious. Have fun!

Hi, Pam and Missy—-
So thrilling that you are waaaaaay down south in that spectacular windswept landscape! I am very impressed that you will be camping most nights, versus taking the cushy route that I did at Patagonia’s Explora Hotel. You are true explorers.
xo,
Mimi
