I'd been told that the Torres de Paine National Park was one of the most beautiful of the world and I went there fully expecting the spectacular. What I didn't realize, though, was the beauty to be found in the small details of this immense natural reserve which make the trip so much more moving and memorable.
I've traveled a lot, but rarely have I enjoyed a place this much. Here, in the heart of the Chilean Patagonia, wherever you look there is beauty, texture, color, composition, forms...it's Art (with a capital A). With every step of the 5-hour hike in the shadow of the Torres, something took my breath away.
