Torres del Paine. Day 3 - Nearly there

CHILE | Tuesday, 3 March 2009 | Views [419]

A long long day. I probably hiked over 20km with a full laden backpack. Again the scenery was amazing. From clambering over rocks and boulders, crossing alpine streams, along shores of lakes, heathland with wild horses to hiking the most challenging uphill trail yet! Over an hour up, up, up and more up. My legs felt like they were going to spontaneously combust my muscles were burning so much.

Trekked this section with some guys I'd met on the circuit a day or so earlier, so it was nice to have some company.

Finally got to Campamento Torres with a little daylight left to erect my tent, and bed down in preparation for an early start the next day. At this height the temperature had dropped severely.
