The French Valley

The trek up the French Valley was a highlight of the entire trip. We passed a glacier that sounded like thunder as it avalanched and calved. When we reached the top of the hike the views were beyond description. Mountains circled us, each peak very different from the other. One shaped like a shark's fin was totally unique from the others. We spend a while sitting on rocks and absorbing the scene.

After hiking back down the valley and further west we spent the night at Paine Grande Mountain Lodge.
