Patagonia

I was getting used to the travel writing thing until I sat down to write the article on Patagonia. I realized that it’s so much easier writing about people and events than frozen water, so I had to do massive growth as a writer. Read it here. It has the best pictures I’ve taken in South America.

I set out on the clearest of days towards Lake Capri to get views of the main attraction, Fitz Roy, a sharp mountain named by our man Francisco Moreno. I found out why so many hikers I passed on the trail were decked out in serious hiking gear when the wind picked up, the clouds covered the sky, and snow flurries starting blowing in my face. I was in jeans, running shoes, and a sweater, and this is where the regret I was talking about kicked in.

It contains dozens of moves, lines, tips, and city guides learned after three months of research in the country, where I dedicated my existence to cracking the code of Argentine women.

Perito Moreno was a great man, and the glacier is amazing. The noise of the ice falling from to the water is really impressing.

My dad is obsessed with Patagonia – read practically every book written about it, since the first expeditions- and to a large extent he instilled that love in the rest of us. He took all my family (including my grandparents- I was afraid they would die!) on a hiking trip to El Chalten and Torres del Paine some years ago, camping in the middle of them… and afraid of stories about pumas in the region. But I did not hike to the top of the Fitz Roy (Chalten, as per its indigenous name), nor Cerro Torre of course. Too bad you did not have the necessary gear. There are some incedible sights around there.

Maybe next trip you can do that and go to Tierra del Fuego as well- the last piece of land before Antarctica. Something that would be pretty unforgettable would be to go on an expedition to the Hielos Continentales (continental ice)… trekking and camping on glaciers for 1-2 weeks, with no tourists around.
