This is El Paso John Gardner, highest point on the circuit trail. We reached the top 4 hours into a grueling 11-hour hike. Photo unfortunately can't do justice to the steepness of the climb, but I loved the cloud formations in this one. #patagonia

Morning of day 2 in Patagonia, en route to Campo Serón. Day 1 was a grueling 26km climb up to El Mirador Las Torres (the lookout). We hit a snowstorm on the way up so couldn't snap any good photos of the towers from up close. Our tired legs were thankful for the relatively gentle day that followed.

Day 1 in Torres del Paine, Chile. Here we are at the checkpoint Laguna Amarga, about to hike 60 miles through the #Patagonias. (For those following @michael_vince too, he's ahead of me, but I've still got some good ones you won't have seen. Stay tuned...)

Second night in Buenos Aires and we didn’t realize restaurants would all be closed for NYE. Hit the grocery but the only thing left in the meats section was ” #matambre” (flank steak). Said “game on” and made a traditional Argentinian stuffed flank steak. Seared on the stove and simmered in #Malbec for 3 hours. Mmm mmm mmm. #food #wine
