Now this is cool: The population of the united states, if it had the same population density of Brooklyn, New York, would need only the landmass of New Hampshire.
I´m in Torres Del Paine park in Chile trekking through incredible terrain. On this night I´m at one of the fancier ´refugios´ in the park, so they even have internet access.
I wanted to quickly check-in with email to make sure that everything´s OK at home and I had to buy 30 minutes of time, so I figured I´d write a quick note.
This park is really amazing. The Refugios are just what they should be (though this one is a little over the top): simple rest stops for the weary hiker. A bed, a beer, a dinner, and a warm atmosphere. We really need more hut-to-hut options in the states.
The scenery has been fantastic. I look forward to downloading my photos onto a computer so that I can check them out on a big screen.
Looking forward to the next few days of trekking and checking out glaciers before heading back to civilization.
