Torres del Paine National Park – Day Two

Today was picture perfect.  The winds calmed down a bit, the sun was out, and temps warmed up while we took two half-day hikes through different parts of the Park.  At every turn there was something strikingly beautiful or incredibly interesting to see. Vista fatigue is never an issue – the terrain, the weather, the sun, and the sky change quickly and often. Below are just a few of the highlights. We hope you enjoy looking at these as much as we enjoyed taking them.

It’s Spring in Patagonia…lots of cute babies running around.

No vista fatigue here. Do you see the profile of an Indian on the right hand side?

A female “Darwin’s Rhea” (a cousin of the ostrich). The male takes care of the babies so a group of mommas were all out to lunch together.

Tomorrow is a VERY long travel day to Valparaiso, Chili - our last stop on this amazing adventure.  This quote is from the “excursion board” where they post the times/locations of all of the hikes.  We’re so grateful we got to spend some time with these magnificent mountains.  We’ll take a lot more away from our time in Patagonia than the pictures could ever show.
