A big surprise was running into Erin McManus, one of Sidney´s advisors from school, who was hiking the W with her husband Mike. We knew she was out here somewhere and had wondered if and when we would see her. We ran into them on the windiest part of the trail and stopped to talk for 20 minutes, our jackets flapping in the wind.
Although the refugio here was the least appealing of all of them, the glacier didn´t disappoint
We also are sure Peter Jackson must have considered Chile as a shooting location for Lord of the Rings--it certainly looks like it could be Middle Earth. But we know why he chose New Zealand. This Park is very remote, and then of course there's the language barrier.
We'll retrace our steps tomorrow to end the W.
