El Chaltén

El Chaltén was my next stop on my way down south. This town is a hikers paradise. Unfortunately, I am not a hiker. Neither am I equipped for hikes. So, it was interesting! I went with several people on an 8 hour hike up to a peak where you could see Fitz Roy. The weather was not so great though. We actually got snowed on for much of the hike!

This explains exactly what it was like at the top. Windy. So windy you could hardly stand. We spend most of the time crouched behind a big rock trying not to be blown away. Seriously.

View on the way back down. Magically the sun had finally appeared.

The small town of El Chaltén.
