Two Years Off Photos from a backpacking journey around the world

Into The Ice: Patagonia

After leaving the Lake District, we descended into Patagonia to Esquel, El Calafate and across the border into Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. It being one of the best times of the year to visit this normally-frigid place, the weather was mostly clear and the normally unbearable cold winds were at least bearable, so we stayed for a week in Patagonia. From hiking to see the beauty of Torres del Paine, to trekking deep into the center of the massive Perito Moreno glacier, we witnessed the wondrous beauty of Patagonia at its best! Here are just a few of the photos from our adventures!

The view of the Cuernos del Paine, or horns of the mountain, were well worth the trip there

Guanacos, related to llamas and camels, can be found all over Patagonia

Lots of tight squeezes from caves and cracks on the glacier

In the middle of nowhere: near the center of the glacier

A long and tiring hike into the depths of the glacier

Kevin’s excited we made it to the center!

    Wonderful pictures! And so many memories! You were lucky to have visit Torres del Paine before the fire.
    Back home I’m a little bit jealous now to see you travel and to have all those exceptional experiences. Enjoy it!
