Ecocamp day2

overcast 15 °C
View Argentina / Chile 2012 on LutzAndBobo's travel map.

Actually not really ecocamp since we leave in the morning for the first trekk, passing las Torres, up and down through winding paths, Manuel explaining here and there the local fruits (not many), and fauna (not much more).  Actually, that's not true, but for a non-biologist, I just miss the spot in my brain to store birds and plants.  The puma is certainly getting on our mind, a he's the largest and probably only predator in the region, aside from the many condors flying above us, beautiful their circles to watch.

After a lunch break (everybody had made some from the breakfast tables, and we have on top our delicious power food), we decide to climb up the Bader valey.  It's a steep hill to the entry, which appears to never end, so we reach the tabletop as 100m below the entry, and decide to enjoy the view over lago nordskold. It's also getting quite windy, and Manual, in his role as the official tour guide, without whom the Bader valey is alledgedly a no go, recommends a return from this point.

We feel anyway for the first day challenged enough, happy to return into the valley to reach RefugioCuernos.
