penguin redneck. nice kelp stain.
"hold it right there buster!".... "i didn´t do it, i swear!"
Another crazy Canadian! this water was cold. southern most swim... check.
fresh face.... day 1 of my epic ( i love that word) 6 day trek through Torre Del Paine national park in southern Chile. Considered by many to be South America´s top park... truly amazing!
my first ice bergs...... breaking off of Glacier Grey...
you can see Glacier Grey hitting the water on both sides of the mountain that is straight ahead. this glacier is 10 km long!
Glacier Grey as the sun goes down.... incredible. the elevation of the surface of the glacier you are looking at is 250 meters!
the lower the sun got, the more this amazing blue started the show....
Day 2. Treking down from Grey Glacier.... tough walk!
i walk around from the Glacier Grey valley, look up into the next valley where i am heading.... .wow!
Day 3: Reaching the lookout at the end of the valley... incredible. my Danish hiking partners Katerina and Anne. we hiked till 9 pm that night to get to the next camp!
these suckers are amazing! they eat rock for lunch... and dinner...
yet another glacier swim.... this one was beautiful. 8:30 pm. in the middle of a trek with all of our gear to the next camp.... couldn´t help myself. people really do think i am crazy. they are probably right.
these are the "Torres" (towers) of Torres Del Paine park. at sunrise. crazy crazy wind. freezing cold (note the fresh dusting of snow). so beautiful.
i did what is called "The W". if you can see the darker green bit that kind of forms a W around the glaciers and mountain peaks in the middle of this picture.. that is the trek i did. so sweet!
i did it! 6 days (5 nights) after setting out, were back, waiting for the bus. that is Chris from Atlanta in this one. great guy that i spent the last couple days of the trek with. i had a nap about 20 seconds after this shot........ what a trip.
Now I can die happy! no photoshop on this puppy!
Not the fastest ride we hitched but it was an experience... Thanks Gustavo!
Another funny ride. Gotta love those Argentine men..... Sergio helped us out big time.
Had a whole lot of this......
yet another major route intersection blocked off by the striking farmers... had to sit at this one for an hour before they would let us continue on our way..... luckily there was an asado (bbq) so we sat back, had a beer and some meat..... very interesting.
mmm mmmm mmmm. roadside asado!
these guys were hilarious! bunch of truckers and farmers in the middle of nowhere......
love this pic!
Walter. Super nice guy. took us far... slow and steady!
