I was stressed again this morning: Putting out the stools, starting breakfast, showering, getting packed and taking down the tent for Deb. She announced this morning that people were getting 2 rolls apiece but only 1 slice of ham and 2 slices of cheese - which went over really big...as one would expect. I suppose if she hadn't, some people would have gotten no meat or cheese for their 2 rolls.
The catamaran didn't leave until noon. We took it across Lago Pehoe, another brilliant blue glacial lake, to a lodge and campground: Refugio Paine Grande. Some of us are doing a 4 day hike with backpacks, tents, sleeping bags etc. I opted for the "V" -.2 days of hiking but not pushing myself to go all the way to the ends. I checked into the refugio and finally got directions to the Grey Glacier part of the "V" walk. I started at 2 pm and took lots of photos on the way
When I got back I had a cup of hot chocolate here at the refugio to warm up. It was pricey - about $3 US for a small styrofoam cup from a machine. I am sharing a room with an older couple from British Columbia-mountain climbers and quite ambitious in their hiking choices. I think the woman said they had gone 29 km that day.
