Tomorrow we make haste to Ushuaia and the incredible splendor of The Beagle Channel, still in Patagonia, but also the most southern city in the world! Wildlife abounds here in incredible numbers. This will be a return trip for us and this time we are staying for a full week. So please stay tuned & cheers to all!

Off Roading Patagonia Style!

Today, Jim and I decided to take a very rough 60 kilometer dirt road, in our really, ummm, modest, compact, rental chevy-something. We wanted to see a lake called Lago Roca. Lago Roca is in the Parque Nacinonal Los Glaciares. (We drove through Kruger National Park in a really cheap rental car also. Jim likes this.)

Tourists rarely venture here. On the drive up, we encountered no traffic, until confronted by this surprising oncoming traffic flying at us at a rather irresponsible velocity. Clearly they were not adhering to the 30 KPH posted speed limit! We had no options but to slam on the brakes! The nerve of some, errrrr………horses!
