... please. Readers might be expecting that wildlife and animal frolics to be high on the agenda in El Chalten. We were told that Deer were to be found among the forest, but sadly none were spotted by the Beard, or the Blonde (sad face). One afternoon we heard a fast, pneumatic sound from the trees above us. After delving through the ferns, we discovered two woodpeckers, a father and son. We belived this to be a family affair as the junior buzzed around the senior, and seemed to be ...
