Cerro Torre

very dramatic peak Cerro Torre. Here I got up at sunrise, literally freezing my feet off in my hammock, and went up to the lagoon to take some pictures as the sun hit the peaks. I think it reminded me of the castle of/in? Mordor in the Lord of the Rings films...How many pictures can one take of rocks? Let's see...


glacial water...brrrr

Though I could not argue with the dramatic beauty of the peaks around El Chalten, I couldn´t believe the amount of foreign tourists. It just didn't seem right to hike a few hours into pristine wilderness only to have to share a crowded campground with dozens of 'trekkers' - mostly Israelis.
