This was my 5th trip to Parque Nacional Torres del Paine in Chilean Patagonia.  It is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I had previously done almost every day hike in the park.

Hiking the Circuit was something I’d always wanted to do, and I was fortunate to make this trip with an awesome bunch of strangers – now friends.    No, the weather wasn’t great.  Except for the day it mattered most to me – the day we climbed the John Gardner Pass for the vista of the Grey Glacier and the Patagonian ice field.

Magic!
