Cerro Torre reveals itself to us in dramatic fashion.
Not a bad spot to have breakfast. Aguja (needle) Saint Exupery is the one second to the left edge of the photo. Saint Exupery has come up a few times on this trip. For one, I was reading Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s “Wind, Sand and Stars” before we left for this trip. Joel (Wisconsinite) was also reading it. I heard that the ending gets a little bit racist, so maybe I’m glad I didn’t finish and left it behind in California… Our room in Puerto Natales was also named after this peak. Saint-Exupery pioneered postal flights in Patagonia in the late 1920’s.
The bleak, cold, and windy valley of the Rio Electrico.
