The next day we continued on the Puerto Natales. The wind died down quite a bit and we made it without incident.

Puerto Natales is the jumping point for the famous Torres Del Paine national park. When I first saw a picture of this place back in Santiago, I just knew I had to visit. So we all headed out there the next day.

I think this is the best shot I’ve taken on the trip. Just love this picture:

Met even more riders on the road.

Without a doubt one of the most picturesque parks I’ve been too. Simply breath taking. The mountains are so incredible they seem fake.

Yet this place is also the embodiment of pure evil. Price gouging here has been taken to a new extreme. The insane prices charged for entering the park and camping here were only eclipsed by the laughing attendant who takes your money. All you wanted to do was punch the dude in the face. He was that annoying. We nick named him “Shit head”.

I figured that the wood was included at the prices they were charging, but found out later it was not. Making it worse, they collected our unused wood in the morning. WTF? As far as I’m concerned they stole the wood from us and I would rectify the situation. I skipped paying for camping the last night.

We heard that food was outrageously expensive here so we brought our own.

Nothing like camp cooking. Good times.
