I have been in Puerto Natales, Chile for Several days now. I am going to try to do two posts today to catch everyone up on what I’ve done here. It’s been pretty incredible. On my first day here, I took a lovely, leisurely boat tour to two glaciers. I met lovely people on the boat, and saw some incredible things. This post is going to be more images than words. This glacier, Balmaceda, is high above sea level (as you can see). In the late 1980’s in reached all the way to the water. In case you weren’t sure that the glaciers are melting… On the boat I met Sophie, a lovely French woman living in NYC and traveling through Patagonia alone. We plan to meet again next week in Buenos Aires! This is the Serrano Glacier. To see this one, we left the boat and hiked about 25 minutes inland. It was quite beautiful… Back on the boat, the served everyone whiskey with ice from the glaciers. Everyone got friendly when the whiskey was served – imagine that. And Sophie and I befriended these lovely ladies from Mexico. My broken Spanish and their tiny bit of english was just enough for us to become fast friends.Here is where our boat docked for us to have lunch on a cattle farm deep in the heart of the Chilean Fjords.
