21 Jan 2018 (Torres del Paine National Park, Chile): We spend this whole day hiking to and from the base of the towers that give their name to the park (Torres del Paine). The photo obviously doesn’t do it justice, but it’s worth stating the obvious; the view at the top is majestic. It’s a bit weird to hike uphill for so long, and then to have a view of some totally different thing that’s even higher up. And I really like that there was no visibility of this thing until all the way up at the top.
And it’s a tough hike. Definitely the hardest I can ever remember doing. And my knees were hurtin’ by the end.
