Greetings from Patagonia…wish you were here!
Photo taken in November 2003 during a trek in the famous Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia Chile.
Hidden at the far southern tip of Chile is home to Torres del Paine National Park, one of the most insanely beautiful parks in the world. In this remote, windswept region of nowhereland, you can experience four seasons in a day and winds so powerful that they knock you down. It is one of the most spectacular settings possible for trekking yet extremely difficult to reach.
As you drive through the barren pampa land without seeing much of any sign of civilization, the park magically appears out of the sky. When you drive along the long, gravel round entering the park this is the view you see: Unforgetable.
Stay tuned….my next series will be on Torres del Paine National Park starting with a day visit to Lima, followed by a trip south to Puenta Arenas an unusual town that is extremely windy, followed by a visit and trek through the world-famous park.
