Not much can be more carefree than relaxing after a long morning hike in the Alps and looking at this beautiful scene as a backdrop! This post was inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree. To see more entries, click here.
Patagonia is a place of mystique. So far away from anywhere I’ve ever been. At the edge of the earth. That is how I felt when I arrived in Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina. In the middle of nowhere. Yet it never felt better.
Photo taken on top of the highest point in Vanoise National Park, France. August 2012. Besides being home with my family, my favorite spot is this above.

The town of El Chalten in southern Argentina is known as the launching off point to a handful of magnificent treks in Los Glaciares National Park. The only way to get there is by bus or car on a road that leads to this outpost in the middle of nowhere. It feels like a dream when you arrive. Eerily quiet save a few late night partygoers, old fashioned street lamps lining the dusty gravel road. But once you are there, […]
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!
