Torres del Paine National Park, Chile - Part 1

So finally I'm getting a chance to show some photos from Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile. As I did with the last set of photos from this trip, I'm going to use the captions to tell most of the story.

After leaving Bahia Bustamante, we flew to El Calafate then took a bus to the Chilean border near the entrance to the park. Our bus driver forgot his papers though, so we were stuck at the border for a number of hours. People from the Explora Hotel came and picked us up and took us to the hotel.

The hotel is situated on the Lago Pehoe, and has an amazing view toward the towers and the main attraction of the park. Although it was the most expensive hotel we've ever stayed in (thanks mom and dad!) it was also the nicest. Each day we went on cool adventures and the food was magnificent.

We had four nights there, then everybody went back to the United States except for me. I stayed and did a hike around the park, and that will be the subject of my next photo essay.
