We rose early for a trip to Estancia Cristina and the Upsala Glacier, but the duvet departure was worth it. In those chilly early hours our bleary pre-dawn eyes were treated to a fiery fan of clouds – as colour leaked from the horizon, it really was as if the day was breaking.
Upon arrival at Estancia Cristina, we hiked through el Cañadón de los Fósiles. Here, surrounded by snowy peaks, imposing canyon walls and pools of rainwater like mirrors, we saw several fossils embedded into the rock face.
The day left us just as it arrived – splashed with colour. Though this time, a little less intense, the colours a little softer, a little gentler – feathery clouds of flamingo pink fading into our tomorrow.
