Chile 2020

12/11/2020: After some rain in the morning, we arrived to a trail in the woods. Slogging up the muddy trail did not give confidence that the sun would come out in time for the eclipse (in 3 days time). We made it up to the first waterfall where I had enough. Jet lagged, to be sure, on the first full day in Pucon area.
