Walking in a winter wonderland...

Today we decided to do a short walk to see Glacier Luis Martial. The day was looking a bit gloomy so we didn't hold out much hope for views.

Started off the walk on what seemed to me to be a cross between a ski slope and a path.

This soon turned into a proper mountain and the weather started to clear up quite nicely. Bit windy though...

Finally reached the base of the glacier. Of course, you can't see it, it's covered in snow, but it's behind that rock formation...

The view back into town is pretty amazing.

However the weather quickly started to close in and it started to snow quite heavily.

So it was a quick run/slide back down the snow to the refugio for some hot soup and mulled wine.

Felt slightly lazy getting the chairlift the rest if the way down...

Off to El Calefate tomorrow for more glacier excitement.
