He turned out to be a good laugh, and a vital third team member to help us battle the headwinds once we turned towards El Calafate. On route we spotted plenty of Guanachos, the Patagonian version of the Llama and lots of Condors. We spotted a bunch feeding on a carcass in a field, the ...

... to pull them back out! Never been used apparently. The cramp ons added an extra weight to your feet but there were no issues walking. I'd opted to rent some proper hiking boots from a store in town for $5 rather than wear my trail runners.

We were moving in and around the wet stuff after all! We were ...
