The Magic Number

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
Crawling out of our my tent, I felt the pain all through my body from the hike the day before, although the hike from the car park to the campsite is relatively easy that final push to the base of the towers is the killer. Torres del Paine comes from the Spanish word torres meaning towers and the Tehuelche Indian word paine meaning blue. The park is named after the three gigantic, spherical granite towers reaching almost 10,000 feet and the surrounding electric blue glacial lakes within the park. I'm continually mesmerised by the towers’ dramatic, captivating beauty, and enjoy admiring them at different times of the day as they turned from hues of pinks and reds to blues and black as the sun rose and set behind them.
