The Hill's Alive (30)
|The hill’s alive with…the sound of the hallowing wind, flowers and guanacos.|
It is very common to see a herd of guanacos glazing along the hills, This is taken on the way back from a hike. After a long day hike in the cold and snow, I just can’t wait to get back to our nice warm hotel room…oh wait, I was too poor to stay in hotel, instead we were camping in the cold. At least back in the camp ground, I could get some hot tea to drink. The mountain in the background is Paine Grande.

Bernardo O'Higgins National Park is its neighbour to the west, while Los Glaciares National Park is located to the north in Argentine territory.
