Torres del Paine day 5 the trek to the Grey refuge

Bit of a transit day, but a long one from Los Cuernos to the Grey Refuge. This is the area of the park that was burnt in the major fire which happened around Xmas time last year. Terrible as some the woodland was 150 years old and so will take as long to regrow.

First sight of the Grey glacier was pretty impressive and seeing icebergs in a lake is a little unusual.

Could have done with some uplifting tunes for the last section of the walk but the iPod didn't make the final kit selection.

The saving grace is that the Grey Refuge is really quite smart and I'm looking forward to sleeping in a bed rather than on a roll mat. Early bedtime beckons.
