Just a little post to show off some pictures we took on Cerro Dorotea this Sunday. Cerro Dorotea is a small mount near Puerto Natales, about 800 mtrs high. Its made up in large part of sandstone and has some interesting conglomerate formations as well. The long west-facing wall looming over the town is home to a great many condors who build their nests on its terraces.
