In the morning we do a short walk to the entrance of the village as we want to see the first sun beams on the mountains. Afterwards we have breakfast and around 11 am we start our hike to Lago de los Tres. This are about 20 km. Again we experience a various landscape. And again we pass the point where you should have registered without having done so (we couldn't find out why you should). Shortly after we meet a Park ranger who asks us if we had registered. Nope... His answer sounds not really encouraging, he talks about a fine... Luckily we can register on the spot, with name, passport number (which I almost know by heart now, what is quite a performance as my memory for numbers is miserable) and so on.
We continue our hike and it gets steeper and steeper. First with a lot of mud as already before than with more and more snow and ice. At some spots it's pretty difficult not to slip. I'm answering myself how I should be able to descend here...
Finally we arrive at Lago de los Tres and the views are amazing – in every direction. Snowy mountains and glaciers on one side, steppe, forests, lakes on the other.
The descent is much less difficult than imagined. Later I almost step on a huge woodpecker and a Patagonian Hare.
We try to organize a ski tour with a mountain guide for the next day but we unfortunately fail.
Dinner is again at “Don Guerra”. The barkeeper is pleased about the two signed Demo Team postcards we bring him.
Amazing stars on the way home. If I wasn't so tired...
Sometime on that day I decide not to go to Peninsula Valdés. It's a pity but it is not worth spending around 35 hrs on buses to only stay there for about 1.5 days.
