Today we were picked up by Cascada to drive to Puerto Natales. In Puerto Natales we met our guide, Rodrigo, for the rest of the tour. We continued on to Torres del Paine. In total, we spent about 5 hours in the car between Punta Arenas and Torres del Paine. The weather coming into the park was absolutely amazing. The light on the towers was stunning. Of course, we asked to get lots of pictures! On our way to Eco Camp, we spotted 5 pumas!! One mama, and 4 kittens. We could not believe our luck. Finally, we arrived to Eco Camp and again, I was completely impressed. We were given a quick tour of the camp, and then shown to our domes. They are so comfortable and warm. Everything is connected by a boardwalk. I checked out the bath rooms, and they were very clean. Eco Camp is well thought, almost completely no impact on the park, and forward thinking. I believe this is where tourism needs to go in the future. We had pico sours and wonderful appetizers waiting for us after we settled in. After that, we had an amazing dinner.
