Back to Argentina! During the last year Geocaching has become part of our travel. This game adds substantial value to the trip. Search for the caches brings us to interesting and nice places mostly not known to the regular travelers. In large Argentina there are just ~170 caches, in much smaller Latvia there are more than 1500 peaces. So each cache found in Argentina is very valuable : ). 

We were traveling by car and Geocaching for three days in the Lakes District. Driven 700 km and found 4 caches. Enjoying Patagonia's summer, autumn and winter. Arround Bariloche we found two caches. One (GC1P1PB) in the rocky forest not far from the lake Nahuel Huapi. There we had some 3 km rather difficult hike as we approached the cache from the other side, sometimes happen : ) Other cache (GCME0T) we found near the lake Guttierez, where we had very nice walk by the lake through the forest and the cache was in a romantic place on the lakeside. At the end of 7 Lakes road we found one cache (GC112Y9) near Hermoso river, it was rather easy, but still nice finalizing of the day's journey. On the third day we went to Volcan Lanin, just because there was cache (GC1JRA7). It was in very interesting protected territory with Monkey Puzzle Tree forest. It was raining, the trail was under the snow and we were climbing up. It took us one hour up and down, we were wet, but happy for the accomplishment. Then we went back to Bariloche by the spectacular road 40, and the sun was again our companion. 

Atpakaļ Argentīnā! Pēdējā gada laikā Geocaching slepņu meklēšana ir kļuvusi par mūsu ceļojumu būtisku daļu. Šīs spēle, kurā ar koordināšu palīdzību tiek meklēti dabā apslēpti slēpņi bieži aizved uz ļoti skaistām un interesantām vietām, kas nav atrodamas nevienā ceļvedī, vai ko nerāda gidi. Tā nu mēs abi trīs dienas ceļojām ar auto pa Ezeru rajonu. Nobraucām 700 km, redzējām Patagonijas vasaru, rudeni un ziemu, un atradām 4 slēpņus. Tie nāca grūtāk nekā Latvijā, jo visā lielajā Argentīnā ir tikai ap 170 slēpņiem, bet Latvijā vairāk kā 1500.
