New Picture

My parcel of photos and books from Patagonia has found its way to remotest Dorset and Dad has kindly scanned in and stiched together this panorama. It's from the top of the 1550m peak that Karina and I bagged on our last day in El Chalten. From left to right, the view is: Lago Toro, Cerro Solo, the Torre Glacier and Lago Torre (the very tip of Cerro Torre can just about be seen above the glacier), Monte Fitzroy, Lago Capri (dark blue, midground), and finally the huge Lago Viedma (if I have remembered that correctly).
