From Chile to Argentina

After 6 days hiking in the Torres del Paine park (the last set of photos) we have moved over to Argentina and El Chalten... "treking capital of Argentina". The weather has given us everything from snow to hot sunshine and we have been able to get out into some amazing landscape, full of rock and glaciers. It looks like a combination of the Peak District, with a bit of Scotland, and the Alps all thrown together. The crazy weather and wind always serves up something unexpected too. We got up onto the Tunnel Glacier for a look around, and found it was a very beautiful place to be looking at. Uploading photos is very slow... but here are some.

We will spend the next week or so here in El Chalten... then... do something else. I want to see penguins.
