... so cold - it had snowed, a lot! Cold and miserable we made ourselves some porridge and a cup of English breakfast and hit the trail around 9.30am. The weather was more settled today but the snow kept things very fresh. My shoes we soaked from the day before so I started with wet, cold feet. After two hours we arrived at the French Valley. This is deemed the high point of the walk in terms of panoramic views. Great news - the valley was closed due to snow! Right now ...
... We were very fortunate that we made it to the glacier and on our way in the distance a a clear view of Cuernos del Paine. When we arrived the Forest Ranger advised our captain that the weather would get bad in an hour, so we only did the shorter hike but even this hike gave a great view of the glacier.

Turned out to be another one ...
... An early start at 8:30 am and off to learn what had become of the Ruta 40. The ripio has nearly all gone. Just 80 km before Tres Lagos and it is being prepared for sealing. Another 60 km later as we took a short cut south and missed Esperanza (stayed on Ruta 40 and the ripio to save some 65 km distance). No dramas, fine weather and less wind than last time. Into PN by soon after 5 pm - just 1 hour getting across the border at Rio ...
