Torres del Paine (Julia Kocubinski)
This morning was much nicer than the day before. The sun was back out again, and we had a few hours to wander the town in the morning before our pickup to Torres del Paine National Park. After the van picked us up, we picked up a guy from Brazil, and a couple from Australia. We met our guide, Armando, a few hours later in Puerto Natales where we had lunch. On the way to the park, Armando took us to the Milodon cave, a HUGE cave located on the way to the park. He explained to us how the mountains were formed in that area, and how the ocean waves had washed away the earth to create the cave. Another couple hours and we were in the park. What a sight! As we approached, you could see the towers appear in the distance. We arrived right after sunset and settled into EcoCamp. This was by far the coolest place I had ever stayed. We were in a canvas dome, with windows, and comfortable beds with fleece sheets! After we settled in, Frankie and I met the group and our guide in the main dome where we had a delicious dinner, and another pisco sour.
