An oasis in the pampas

Greetings from Patagonia…wish you were here!

Photo taken during one of many hikes in Las Glaciares National Park, Argentina.  November 2009.

I loved this tiny mountain village called El Chalten in Argentina.  It is at the base of Las Glaciares National Park and is just a speck in the oasis of Patagonia.  Founded in 1985 as a base for dedicated climbers of neighboring Mount Fitz Roy, El Chalten has grown into a handful of rustic homes and one main drag.  I will never forget rolling into El Chalten in pitch darkness down the one lane road.  It was the perfect escape from touristy El Calafate and extremely tranquil.
