Our first day in town was amazingly clear and tranquil so we got out early to spend the day hiking up to Laguna Torre where we were able to marvel at the serrated mountain peaks and listen to the rumble of moving glaciers while eating our lunch overlooking a gorgeous glacial lake. The next day started out perfectly clear and beautiful and we were quite excited about the amazing views we had of Mt Fitz Roy. The hike was relatively moderate until the last hour when it took a definite turn towards the heavens. By the time we reached the top of the hill (or mountain as dad would call it) the clouds had moved in and covered the peaks. And true to form the top of Fitz Roy proved elusive for the rest of the week. Still we could not help but gaze in its general direction in the hopes that the clouds would break temporarily for another quick glimpse.
