Day 23: Tackling the Torres

Patagonia

all seasons in one day 55 °F

12+ mile hike today with 2700+ feet elevation gain. So incredibly tired. But worth it. My camera is still low-battery—

LIFE BIRD?: maybe Patagonian Mockingbird? Anybody know?

Shed two layers & hid them under a tree thirty minutes into the hike! Later successfully found them on the way back!

Incredible, once-in-a-lifetime hike. Bird-of-the-day to my mystery birds. Stay tuned: tomorrow is my last day in Patagonia: I fly back to NYC in the evening!

Good birding,
Henry

Safe travels back to New York, Henry! I can't wait to see the pictures from your camera once you have your battery fully charged. I loved 'traveling' with you and your family on this awesome trip!
