Trip planning…

So far, so good! I’ll be heading to Patagonia the third week of October, bypassing Buenos Aires for Calafate. I’ll be starting the trip with some back-country hiking in Los Glaciares and Torres del Paine, before heading further south to Tierra del Fuego. There, I will be sailing what Chilean writer Francisco Coloane calls the “strange and lost waters at the edge of the world”– hopefully ’round Cape Horn. Bariloche and the pampas are on the itinerary too! Coloane describes a connection when one looks at “nature itself, as if asking [it] something, and [it]… return[s] the look to us inexpressively; but a current is established, something happens in our minds, a light goes on, and we discover what we were looking for, even though it may not be anything more than the peace from our own uneasiness.” I hope to find that in the austral landscape.
