ultramarinus – beyond the sea

DAY 76 (2 OF 2) – LAGUNA CAPRI, PARQUE NACIONAL LOS GLACIARES (NORTH), EL CHALTEN, ARGENTINA

It only took us about an hour and a half to reach Laguna Capri from El Chalten.  The short hike was often considered an alternative hike when the weather was not ideal to do the full day hikes.  As expected we couldn’t see Cerro Fitz Roy at Laguna Capri as the mountain was hidden behind clouds.  We sat down on a log at a small beach by the lagoon for almost two hours, but there wasn’t a single moment of a clear view of Fitz Roy.  The weather kept on changing from sunny to rainy every ten minutes or so.  Luckily our rain gear worked well to keep us dry.  On our way back, the scenery of Rio de las Vueltas down the valley was fantastic under the late afternoon light.
