Arrived in Puerto Natalies yesterday afternoon. Was going to ride into the park and camp, but needed some supplies so decided to stay at this hostel. Erractic Rock. Friends stayed here, and really liked it. It is owned by a guy from Portland, Oregon And most of the staff right now is from Portland area as well. Was crazy talking with them and things from home.

After awhile, Trisha says .... You should meet David who was here a few days ago............. He was on a ship in Antarctica too..... He is at the hostel around the corner. OK. Then she says he met a guy riding a bike called "Radioman", and Julie says ....... "Thats Mark" Small world.

Later met up with David and Arnout that were my roommates on the Plancius!!! They are both traveling for longer periods of time as well, so i will see them again as we head north to El Calafate /El Chatlen



Once again I met some amazing people in this hostel 2 lovely KIWI ladies, a Woman from Seattle nad the staff members from the Hostel are fantastic. They did not have moto parking at the hostel but found me a spot for my bike just half a block away!! Great!!

Torres Del Paine Chile onto El Calafate!

Had a great stay at Erratic Rock Hostel in Puerto Natales Thanks to a great staff! Took a phot but somehow it did not turn out. Thanks Julie, Trisha and Ruth !! If they can find a spot for your bike this is a great Hostel with friendly folks from Oregon (wish I had met the owner Bill, but he was up in the parque showing friends around).

http://www.erraticrock.com

Edited 1/6/12 was on my other camera. Here is Ruth from Holland, and Julie from Oregon who is managing the hostel! Great People. Say Hello for me!



Was up early for 6:30 Breakfast, as I wanted to get back into the park early to enjoy the nice weather.



Clouds were building in Puerto Natales as I left Rain predicted for next day



Looking for promising as I ride the 60 KM north to the edge of the park.



Sky keeps clearing. Last time I was riding through here the clouds we low and dense, so this is great!!



As I arrive into the edge of the park, the Mounatins are visible and mostly clear.



What a beautiful view. I have always loved being in and around the mountains. They make the best roads in and around Mountains and bodies of water Love it!




Yes it is great to be back into this park and able to take in the glory of it all!



Another great day riding




Feels great to just enjoy this amazing view!!




Deserves another jump!!




I reenter the park for a ride around and to enjoy it!




Really Amazing views... around every turn.











Bit of Marbly gravel roads in the park...





Even the Guanaco's are enjoying it





The park fading away behind me. But I had a smile on my face to have enjoyed the views all morning!




Back out of the park for some real Wind...




I think they need a new sign for this....... Maybe like this......



Then I ride back out of Chile to Argentina, before heading north to El Calafate!





A group of German riders at the border..... Hardly talked to me..... they were riding south



Arrived back to El Calafate to relax for a day or two....
