Rugged, Windy and Breathtaking Patagonia

A travel blog entry by keithandkim

This is a top pick!

... wild wheels of cheese are dangerous, i am glad you are bringing your knife” After some absurd laughter, we are out the doors still chuckling about wild wheels of cheese rolling through the hills of Patagonia.

Anyways, the hike starts steeper then the last one gaining several hundred meters of elevation, before flattening out and making its way closer to Fitz Roy. At the 6km viewpoint we can almost make out the peaks, but not quite. We start hoping ...

San Julian Surprises

A travel blog entry by jdtrip

Some ramshackle farm buildings, here and there a small settlement, in the scrubland, but predominantly back out into the wide open ...

As we walked, the rain often fell so hard it felt like gravel was ...
