    Parque Nacional Torres del Paine

    November 10, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 52 °F

    We arrived in Punta Arenas, Patagonia, without issue except one guy's luggage didn't make it. He's supposed to get it by tonight, but since our hotel is 250 kilometers away from the airport, I don't think he's holding his breath. We drove past the Straights of Magellan. Wow.

    Today, we're touring Torres del Paine National Park. We've seen wild guanacos (llama), nandu (ostrich), ibis, geese, flamingos, and black-necked swans. We stopped at a small lake that one of only four places in the world that has Stromatolite, coral fossils that are 4 trillion years old.

    Right now, we're at Mirador Salto Grande, the beautiful waterfalls.

    Patagonia reminds me of Wyoming and Montana, a land of harsh beauty. I could spend a long time here.

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️
