Of all the remarkable landscapes throughout Chilean Patagonia there are few that match the glacially polished, cloud-studded, crenulated skyline of Torres del Paine. Wind is a consistent companion to summer visits to this national park but, while today was no different in that regard, the clouds complimented our views nicely. Just enough for contrast but not too many to conceal the geology that makes this place so famous. From the commanding peaks above us to the multitude of birds and mammals all around we were given an incredible introduction to the crowned jewel that is Patagonia.
