Backpack free day (mostly)! Thank goodness!
Today we hike up to viewpoint Britanico, a 5 hour round trip from Camp Italiano so we can leave our heavy packs behind.. Hurray! Still a rushed day though as we still need to pack up camp and head to the next camp site (Camp Cuernos) after that. 8.5hours all up!
The scenery has changed quite a bit though, beautiful vast lakes and greenery, and a pebblestone beach. Camp Cuernos is a powered campsite so we enjoy cooking indoors in the kitchen provided and attempt (and fail) to dry our soggy muddy socks by the log burner. We enjoy a delicious hot chocolate at the refugio and retire for the evening in preparation for a big day tomorrow.Read more
