El Calafate to Puerto Natalas (bus 300 km’s) & Hiking Torres del Piane

Getting near bottom
Torres del Paine
Hike the “W”
Survive the winds

.
It was an easy bus ride with another boarder crossing back into Chile.

.
After a few days of planning, renting of packs and poles we struck out to hike the Torres del Paine. There are two routes, the full circuit, or the W. we chose to do the W. we planned on staying in the park 6 nights because we had the time.
.
We chose to hike 18 Km’s in from the administration building, and then hike the W from west to east.
.
While campsites were busy, most of the time hiking was not too busy.

.
After hiking in, we pitched our tent at Paine Grande. The winds were so strong that we huddled our tent in with others in a little corner, protected by a berm.

It rained day two so we spent what we called a Libby day, relaxing and reading. We met our new friends from Luxembourg at the campsite. We had a laugh that Algonquin park is three times the size of Luxembourg.

.
Next day we hiked to Grey glacier. It was amazing, with lots of little icebergs along the way.

Next we hiked east to the middle of the W, left our packs at the bottom, and hiked up to see the French Valley. When completed, we hiked to Los Quernos. This was a very windy site.

.
Every few minutes this wind would pick up and blow dirt under our tarp, raining us with dust in the eyes. Wen the wind blew, we had to put the eye patches from the airplane on to protect our eyes. All around us tents were pancakeing (poles flattened). It was fierce.

The last night it rained hard and we were wet. We both changed at the same time ad came together unknowingly dressed alike (Mr and Mrs Ed Allen).
