We debated a bit about what to do today. Our legs are tired.. so we weren’t too excited about another big hike, but we couldn’t really think of anything else to do. The weather wasn’t perfect, so we scratched a few things off the list.
We decided to head up to Laguna de los Témpanos. On our way to the trailhead, we stopped and asked for directions. A man that lives at the bottom of the mountain pointed us in the right direction… and we also got to meet his litter of adorable puppies. They were just over 40 days old… and he was planning to take them into town to sell them soon.
The hike up was just as all of our Patagonian hikes have been – very steep and quite muddy. This time though they actually did a very nice job of placing logs and bridges. This hike isn’t even part of a park, so we were surprised that the trail was that nice. We essentially hiked up into a cloud, and it drizzled a little bit. The fall colors were spectacular. We reached the glacial lagoon and were unfortunately not able to see the majority of the mountain and glacier behind it, but we got a little taste at least.
Last night in Ushuaia tonight. Heading back to Buenos Aires tomorrow for a day before heading home.
