Grey Glacier

Last Hope Fjord
Last Hope Fjord
Last night we stayed at the Refugio Paine Grande. This nestled below the back aspect of Paine Grande and across from Lago Pehoe. When I took off my boots last night I saw why I had been in so much pain. Inflammation and infection of my toenails was so bad I was unable to participate in today's hike, ironically probably the easiest one of the week. It included a boat ride to the base of Grey Glacier. Another reminder to appreciate these activities while we can. Sarah, another hiker in the group was also unable to hike today. I was sorry for her, but appreciated her excellent company.

So we saw the rest of the group off for the left leg of the W then later boarded the catamaran across Lago Pehoe. This was a scenic alternative that enabled us to meet the rest of the group after completing their trip across Lago Grey. We could see the glacier in the distance at the far end of the lake. Large icebergs floated nearby. Small remnants of ice reached the pebbly beach. One wondered how long ago the ice of these intricately-shaped fragments had been formed deep in the glacier. Everyone jokingly said that we hadn't missed much.

That evening we were back at EcoCamp for the final 2 nights.
