Laguna Torre Hike

Day 8: Start of our hike to Loma del Plieguey
Day 8: Start of our hike to Loma del Plieguey
Our itinerary for today said we were supposed to hike to Laguna Los Tres, a glacial lake at the base of Cerro Fitz Roy, the highest peak in the area at 11,168 feet. But the weather report called for more rain and clouds, so after talking it over with our guide, we opted to hike to Laguna Torre, at the base of Cerro Torre. Despite the wind and the rain, Laguna Torre offered us a rainbow as our reward for withstanding the elements! Our box lunch, which our guide delivered to us in the morning, included two staples of the Argentine diet -- empanadas and homemade alfajores. As the saying goes, ''The Argentines don't eat to live, they live to eat!'' (see Day 8 photos)
