I just got back a few weeks ago. You're right, it's a beautiful trekking area that's perfect for all types of people to share. Very accessible, at least in the parts I was in. Unfortunately, I ran out of time to check out the trails outside the loop. I didn't make it to Piedras Blancas and Lago Toro, darn, but thanks for the photos.

And like you, I didn't feel it was crowded on the trails, despite the people you see in camp and know are in town (full hostels but quiet streets).

I was really lucky with the weather.

Your first picture of the Tarptent DB w/Kristin, was that at the Piedmas Campsite? (I think that's the name, close to Lagunas de la Tres) I think I camped in that exact same spot.

Did you find El Chalten got brutally windy after 5 pm? I camped in town a couple of nights and was right in thinking the sites inside the park would have been better sheltered.

Thanks for the trip reports and, as stated above, keep 'em coming.

That rock surfing photo makes me a little faint just looking at it. Badass!

Brings back good memories. I also recall some very intelligent and acrobatic mice at the campspots. At night they seemed to enjoy using my tent as a trampoline among other entertaining stunts. Are they still there?
