We took a boat to the Arrayan forest. Everyone we have mentioned this to got very excited. Argentines are very proud about the Arrayan trees as they only grow on this island. It was pretty neat.
Our boat to Isla Victoria and the Arrayan forest outside of Bariloche.
El Bolson: town of hippies and randomness.
A carving in El Bosque Tallado (the carved forest). It is a small area in the hills around El Bolson where there was a fire ten years ago. After that some woodcarvers came in over the years and carved on the dead trees. There are now about 40 carvings. Really neat.
Yet another town, and another long search for a campsite. Trekking through Esquel.
A prize winning ram at the Merino Ram auction in Esquel.
An older man in the park in Esquel. The old men here dress more traditionally, and are very nice.
I leave Monday for Gan Gan. Basically the "nada de nada" of Patagonia. It is a booming metropolis with less than 100 residents, and one police officer who apparently knows the CENPAT group well due to a sheep incident last year. I don´t know all the details on that one. We will be conducting ecological and behavioral studies on the lizards there. I will take lots of pictures and write you all in 2 weeks. Until then, take care and I love you all!
