Hills, with rockslide, on our bus ride to Patagonia.



A lake, near Patagonia. I'm guessing this is Lago Sarmiento de Gamboa, looking south.

Another mystery lake near Patagonia.



The gentle, peaceful side of Patagonia.

The real Patagonia. Not gentle or peaceful.

A big story here; the bus (from Puerto Natales to the Grey Lodge) dropped us off to see a HUGE waterfall, Satto Grande. It was a twenty minute walk, along a road/trail that was under construction and filled with mud and puddles of water. Oh, and there was about a 50 mile-per-hour wind coming straight at us...and it was somewhat rainy.

After all that...we got a not-so-pretty violent torrent of water falling over a ledge.



An attempt at a panoramic (three photos) of a violent waterfall, Satto Grande. Massive winds and rain made this difficult. Somehow, it nearly worked.

After the torture of a windy/rainy hike to Satto Grande, the wind AND rain both die off. Moss with tilt-shift.

Nice. Tilt-shift moss near Satto Grande. The blue blur in the upper third is either Mama or Papa.

Mama and Papa hiking back from Satto Grande. Slightly darker than reality, but it captures the angry sky.

Finally arrived at the Lake Grey hotel. Just after sunset. There was a 'trail' from the front of my cabin to the lake, which I exploited, and suffered through MORE winds to get the first look at Glacier Grey. Little did I know that there is an official boardwalk from the common room to here. Oh well.

Interpretation: The blue stuff near the middle of the picture is the Grey Glacier. The mountain to the right is Paine Grande.
