Since we had a super long day on the Road to Hana in Maui yesterday with waterfalls, streams and greenery, here's a throwback to Patagonia. Stay tuned for lots of Hawaii images, which I'll be editing this week when I'm back home.
Hiking to French Valley in Chilean Patagonia you wind through lush greenery while gazing across a deep blue lake at the Cuernos Paine in the distance.
I enjoyed the hike immensely until we arrived at a rickety suspension bridge. Being deathly afraid of heights and suspect of bridges (especially ones that state “Only Two People at a Time on the Bridge”), I was not keen to cross it.
While I appreciated the beauty and sound of the rushing glacial water, I had zero desire to find myself immersed in it. After convincing myself that my clumsy nature would not result in my demise (did I mention one of my nicknames is “Honey Oopsie” and I manage to trip on flat side walks), I crossed the bridge. My racing heart brought back memories of some similar Nepalese bridges, which I loathed equally.
Fortunately, you are rewarded with incredible panoramas of mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes and alpine valleys. After traversing some steep boulders, we perched ourselves on rocks overlooking the glacier, listening and watching for avalanches at a safe distance. Anticipating where the next thunderous boom and snow plumes would come from was a fun lunchtime activity.

Surfing is kind of a good metaphor for the rest of life.
The extremely good stuff - chocolate and great sex and weddings and hilarious jokes - fills a minute portion of an adult lifespan.
The rest of life is the paddling: work, paying bills, flossing, getting sick, dying. - Jaimal Yogis, Saltwater Buddha
