Hike to Mirador De Los Condores

Next day, we did the hike up to the Mirador de los Condores, and beyond it the Mirador Aguilas, the only places from which you can see the whole empanada, that is the whole alpine landscape of the region.
Us atop the Mirador Aguilas; too windy to stand up; I did a
video too that I'll link later

Very nice playground, walking through El Chalten

In the Parque visitor center

Helpful model

History of ascents of Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy

View from visitor center

Distant mountain way beyond Lago Viedma

The day's trail

Curious orange mountain

Lake Viedma

Killer bee?

As we descended, Fitz Roy went into hiding; we got out for
another good hike the next day back to Laguna Torres, but then
the clouds and rain returned, and it was time to move on
