Torres del Paine, Patagonia

Love❤️

Even though it’s freezing cold (wintertime, at the bottom of the world, I guess it would be!) From Santiago (which is in the middle of Chile, north to south, it is over a three hour flight from Punta Arenas! Punta Arenas is the southernmost city in the world. From there, I stayed one night, and I had to take buses back north, to Puerto Natales, and then into Torres del Paine National Park. The buses were another full day of travel. Not easy to get to, but totally worth it. I was staying at a hotel inside the park, on Lake Pehoe (pronounced: pay-way). I should’ve rented a car because I didn’t get to see much of the park. Because it’s out of season, all of the tour operators are closed. So, I decided to do two different hikes that I could walk to from the hotel. One was called “Mirador Los Cuernos”, which included an impressive waterfall, and the other I can’t remember – it was something like “Condor’s Nest”. I will simply put post pictures – what a remarkable place☺️
