A quick note to say that we are moving on from the Lakes District of Argentina. This most magnificent area is well worth a visit. We got plenty of climbing in the mountains as per our last post and then spent several days exploring the great sport climbing in the area.
Nate enjoying Cerro Ventana!
Ben loving the overhanging rock, Lago Gutierrez in the background
In between climbing sessions, we were enchanted by the awesome scenary! The lakes of the lakes district are generally very large lakes-more like small seas-which means great kayaking, beaches, sunsets and just a general feeling of summer!
The calm before the storm. Taken just hours before Lindsey's first bout of food poisoning.
Thanks to all for the fun and wonderful comments (granola1 and maxkunz - shouts out for your additions!!)
And certainly, no goodbye would be complete without a huge thanks to Alisa and Nate for their ongoing patience and generosity to us! Thank you both and we look forward to catching up with you elsewhere around the globe.
We will now be heading down the famous Ruta 40, a mix of bumpy pavement and dirt road that stretches from Bariloche to Chalten along the eastside of the mighty Andes. The road will cover some 1000+ kms and leave us at the mountain paradise of southern Patagonia!
