On our first day in Patagonia we had a vast van tour of the National Park. We saw the cave where the Megladon (or Mylodon to everyone else) and his animal mates were found. After we ran into some roadworks, so our guide parked up on the side of the road and we took and impromptu walk to a nearby waterfall. On the next leg of the tour we were absolutely pummelled by the wind for an hour as we walked to see a glacier by The Grey Lake. It was the first time I’ve nearly been blown over by the wind and it definitely was not the last in this trip. Our last walk was to get a good look at Cerro Paine Grande, the impressive stripy mountain range at the end of the post. We soaked up the view and distinct lack of people for half an hour before heading back.
