Santiago and The Towers

This is the first post of many of our trip to South America. These phots are from our day in Santiago, Chile and the first two days of hiking in Patagonia. I took over 4000 pictures this trip so it has been a hefty effort to get all of these photos edited and posted. I won’t be providing much in the way of narration for these posts but I hope you enjoy anyway!
