El Chalten – Not Great if You Don’t Like Hiking – Part Two
Heather Markel, Writer, Speaker, Photographer, Traveler, Business Strategist
My El Chalten experience, continued.
The hikes are no doubt beautiful as you can tell from my photos. I did one called Laguna Torre. That trail was 9 kilometers. I only did the first 2.5 kilometers as that was hard enough for me and being cold and windy I didn’t want to overdo it. With the clouds I missed out on seeing Fitz Roy in all its glory. I first worry about hiking alone because I might be mugged (damn you anxiety) but then I worry because if I get hurt I’m alone. Soon enough, I see tons of other hikers and all my anxieties disappear. I even manage to hike up and down some steep areas and do just fine.
A sign lets me know what path I’m on.

Another gorgeous view, wonder what it’s like in sunshine! Then again, this way it’s more mysterious. 🙂
