Patagonia Trek

6/01 Patagonia Trekā€”Some of the most surreal euphoric landscapes in the world!

Since Leigh and I had a rental car at our disposal we opted to take a 2+ hour trek to a region called Tronador, which is located along the Chilean-Argentinean border amongst glaciers and volcanoes, as well as a variety of animals. We heard first hand the sound of the glaciers cracking and falling (calving), a haunting sound amongst the silence that the valley enables. After our trek we returned home to the killer apartment pad, did some journaling while watching the Andes overlook the lake.

Incidentally, on our way out of town, while searching for a place to drop off laundry, a group of 5 teens tried to discourage Shannon from driving down a particular street. She thought they were asking for a ride and drove right by them, which secured us front row seats for their one block march of solidarity. All I could make out from one sign as it rushed by was "Basta... (Enough...)"
