Today we did the Full Paine, this is a great overview of the National Park and all it's lovely mountains, lakes and glaciers. There were 5 of us plus our guide Jarvier and another young female trainee. There were 2 American's from San Diego and another girl from Iceland. We left the hotel at 9.30 and headed out of the National Park to a small lake that we passed on the way to the hotel the first day. This lake has a high pH and there ...
