We love getting updates from our travelers in the field. Keiko, a Wildland alumni currently on our Hiker’s Patagonia Adventure, sent us this epic photo from Fitz Roy in Los Glaciares National Park. Her reaction is the same one I had the first time I saw Fitz Roy peek out from under a blanket of cloud cover – an overwhelming feeling of wonder at the raw beauty that is uniquely Patagonia. I’ve wandered the world and haven’t found a more beautiful and pristine place that offers so many options of adventure activities and amazing accommodations. Keiko, thanks for checking in (!!!) …proof positive of why these are the places I love to share!
