Laguna Torre review

El Chaltén, Patagonia

Three years ago today, I hiked to Laguna Torre in El Chaltén, Patagonia with Annie and Libby (thanks to Google Photos for the reminder). It was a cold summer day with a light snow flurry while we were on the trail. When we got to the lake, it was cold and windy but beautiful in a bleak way. Previous hikers had built some primitive rock walls to shelter themselves from the wind. They came in handy for us.

It wasn't until we left El Chaltén on a clear day that I realized the view we had missed at Laguna Torre that day:
