Photo taken in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina. Less than two weeks from now, I’ll be hiking again. Not the Andes but the French Alps. I can hardly wait!
“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.” ― Barry Finlay, Kilimanjaro and Beyond Photo taken in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina. 2009. It was cold that morning as we rose for day three of our hike in the midst of nowhere. It had lightly snowed the night before leaving behind footprints from the Heavens above. Despite the fatigue, to be at one with nature doing what I love best, was sensational. Oh, Patagonia, how your heart […]
Photos of the world famous Perito Moreno Glacier in southern Argentina. I was going through older photos and came upon some taken during a trip to Patagonia in November 2009.

Greetings from San Carlos de Bariloche…wish you were here! Photo taken in November 2007 trip to San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina. I will always love Argentina. It has it all—wine, food, mountains, sea and fabulous culture. If I wasn’t so curious about seeing new places, I would continually return to Argentina. San Carlos de Bariloche is part of the Argentine Lakes District. It is the start of Patagonia yet the true Patagonia lies in the south. I love them both, […]
