photos from los glaciares national park

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.
