Fire fighters, Torres del Paine National Park entrance, Patagonia, Chile.
Due to a grass fire burning and closing Torres del Paine National Park entrance in February 2005, we shortened our ?W Route? Trek from 8 to 5 days. The grass fire was caused by a camper lighting their portable stove on a windy day. Backpacking with a tent, stove, food, pad, and sleeping bag is cheaper than hut walking, but frequent 50mph winds can make tent camping uncomfortable in Patagonia.
