We took a day trip to the Andes, which are fairly dry during the autumn season.
Our tour guide told us if we didn't take a photo in front of the flower clock, it was as if we had never visited Viña del Mar. So we did.
A first peek at the Grey Glacier, one of 49 glaciers in the Patagonian Southern Ice Field.
Starting off the famous W-Trek in Torres del Paine National Park with a ferry ride.
On my first day, I had lunch at the base of Paine Grande, the mountain that towers over the entire park.
In completely exposed fields like this, the wind can get up to 150 km per hour! The view made the chance of getting blown away worth it.
Trekking is always better with company. Loved having these two lovely ladies with me for the past week.
Sunrise on day two of the W-Trek, with the clouds parting to show Paine Grande.
On our ferry back to EcoCamp, we got up close and personal with the Grey Glacier.

The houses of Valparaíso are known for their bursting color, originally painted with leftover paint from the boats of the sailors who settled the area.
The other highlight of Valparaíso, besides the hills peppered with colorful houses, is its street art. Photo Credit: Harnoor Singh
