Hike up Cerro Llao Llao

March 14, 2008 After a late start–like all the starts on this trip, Anders has been sleeping until 8:30 or 9:00!–we dropped off some laundry and headed back into the national park for a little hike. The trail up Cerro Llao Llao is short, but quite steep and at the top there are wonderful views …

Sendero de los Arrayanes

March 13, 2008 The trail we hiked today is Sendero (trail) de los Arrayanes (a type of myrtle). It’s in the National Park Nahuel Huapi and basically winds from Puerto Pañuelo to Lago Moreno through a lot of bamboo, an arrayanas forest and some coihues. Plus there were great views of Lago Moreno and the …

Walk to Lago Nahuel Huapi

The Foder’s Guide says the name means bay-colored mountain, but we think the “Bayo” refers to the view of the bay. The Fodor’s …

Chile and Puyehue

March 10, 2008 From Villa la Angostura it is only 40 km to the Chilean border, so we figured we’d give it a look. We drove around the lake a bit more and then headed toward a low pass in the mountains. I had this vision that we’d be getting high into the Andes by …

Bariloche to Villa de Angostura

March 8, 2008 😛 Updated with photos 😛 I’m sitting in a café in Villa de Angostura with the intention of adding pictures from yesterday. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera yesterday and took pictures with Henry’s camera, which is back at the cabaña with Henry and Anders. Yesterday, Anders was feeling pretty badly; he’d been …

Argentina–Day 1, Bariloche

March 6, 2008 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SCOTT!!!!! It was a long four flights, but after two days of travel, Anders and I made it to San Carlos de Bariloche (known simply as Bariloche). Henry met us at the airport which garnered a huge smile from Anders–and me. Turns out the people of all nationalities love Anders–maybe …
