Despite the hardest hiking we've ever done, hauling more weight than a human is suited to carry, we had the time of our lives. After at least 24 hours of rain the sun came out and we immediately spread out all our things. Even the herbs from our kitchen bag were wet.
As things got dry, packs got lighter (10 days worth of food is heavy!), and the scenery started to improve, we finally knew why we were here. We saw Glacion Grey icebergs calving from the Patagonian Icecap, lakes majestic and serene in every hue of the spectrum, and of course the famous towers rocketing from the earth and expanding to infinity.
We ended the circuit today with a fabulous boat ride across turquoise Lake Pehoe. We had to choose between Valley Frances or Valley Acenceo because we didn't have time to do both. We chose Valley Acenceo, which is home to the famous torres, the towers that climbers from all over wait months to climb because of weather. Bill is so excited to be
among the climbing crowd.
