Malbec Wine with dinner (Michele Marcigliano)
We were to be ready for breakfast by 7am, and would leave soon after. Today we had to get to a ferry at Refugio Gray. It was hard to get ready with no running water or electricity in lodge, but we all made due and laughed about it. The best plans usually have a curve ball thrown in and make things more exciting. The day was cool and raining slightly. The trail brought us to views of Lago Gray where there were floating icebergs. We continued to walk the trail, making our way to Refugio Gray. We were able to sit and have lunch at the refugio. Soon we heard the horn of the ferry and were off to the dock to meet it. The ferry ride took us to views of glaciers. The weather began to rain even more, but most people stayed outside on the ferry for the wonderful views. When we docked, our group was picked up by a van and brought back to Eco Camp. We were given appetizers and piscos to drink before dinner was served. Tomorrow was another day of trekking.
