French Valley Hike

Day 3: The Towers in early morning light
Day 3: The Towers in early morning light
The early morning light blessed us with gorgeous views of The Towers -- Torre Norte and Central -- Cerro Nido de Condor, and Almirante Nieto, just above our Dome. Today was a full day of hiking. The first was a 20-minute hike to a lookout on Lago Nordernskjold and to the Salto Grande, a picturesque waterfall between Nordernskjold and Lago Pehoe. A catamaran ride across Lago Pehoe brought us to the trailhead for the second hike, a longer 12-mile trek along the shores of Lago Skottsberg to the French Valley. The weather improved as the day progressed giving us spectacular views of The Horns -- Cuerno Este, Principal and Norte -- and the Paine Grande and Glaciar del Frances. We fell in love with The Horns, a magnificent mountain formation, and took pictures of it from every angle possible.(see Day 3 photos)
