Day 11 – Expedition Explorers

GoogleEarth screenshot of San Quintin Glacier, Istmo Ofqui, Northern Patagonian Icefield, Patagonia, ChileWe are up to some ass kicking stuff this austral summer. Destination: Northern Patagonian Icefield with twelve calving glaciers, deep uncharted fiords, wild mountain rivers, places without names untouched by human presence, no trails, crazy Patagonian peaks, one month of hiking and paddling. We have adventurous plans and plenty of brand new equipment. I already want to be there. Check out our planed camping spot on day 11.

High altitude December

Vizcacha, Las Cuevas, Lauca National Park, Parinacota, Altiplano, ChileI spent almost whole December on gravel roads of Altiplano, contemplating views of ice covered volcanoes, and soaking my but at hot springs while watching star filled sky. December is a good time to go there. Just before rains start. It is warm and days are long giving you lot of time every day for exploration and photography. Have a look at new Altiplano photos here.
