2019 Patagonia Trek Gets Started!

Hello family and friends. The Alpine Ascents trekking group has arrived to Argentinian Patagonia. It is a team of five hikers who are eager to hit the trails in this beautiful part of South America: Jamie and Art, Jeannie and John and Pete. Yesterday, we traveled by private bus from El Calafate to El Chalten enjoying great views of Argentino (the biggest lake in Argentina) and Viedma lakes. In the afternoon we hiked to Los Condores and Eagles lookouts. We saw a condor, falcons, guanacos. Today, we are hiking towards Laguna Torre. We are all looking forward to enjoying the fantastic views of Patagonia.
Sending our best to family and friends!
More soon!
Stay tuned
