patagonia w trek day III: vertice paine grande

Kate ParrishComment

day III of our trek was the craziest weather we experienced – rainstorms + WIND! – luckily we came prepared with pack covers and rain gear. campo italiano {a small free campsite} was at the base of this trail where we were able to drop our packs for a bit. we saw glaciers and even a mini avalanche. later we walked along a crystal blue lake to arrive at our final refugio – vertice paine grande. this was the biggest of all the refugios; we even had our own little teeny tiny room. there was a bar and a mini-grocery where we were able to pick up some treats. it made for a fun last night on the trail. 

^^ the photos taken after this one are hilarious – it was so windy that i couldn't even stand up
