Holly’s HB update #11

Los Cuernos, Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine National Park is one of the world’s beauty spots, but has challenging weather. Picture crawling over a mountain pass on your hands and knees, with your backpack flapping around as the wind tries to separate you from the ground.

This trip was not like that at all! It was sunny, not too windy and hardly rained at all.

I attribute this good fortune with the weather to my mum, Kay North. She has always been a good weather fairy on our adventures together – on mountain walks in Nepal, New Zealand, Tasmania, Alaska, the Rocky Mountains, Oaxaca and Chiapas in Mexico, and others.

On this trip, since real Kay is indisposed but still keen not to miss out on Patagonia and Antarctica, Kay Penguin is accompanying me and seems to be imbued with real Kay’s superpowers with the weather.
