Hiking in El Bolson, Argentina January 13 to Feb 8th 2013

We spent a month or so in the El Bolson area of Argentina, joining up with our friends the Loso's who wintered there. We did several multiday back packing trips up into the mountains, utilizing the wonderful reffugio system that is set up there. These pictures are just a glimpse of some of the fun adventures we had. 

Hanging at Retemal, one of many wonderful refuggios in the mountains, around El Bolson. 

Ruby, getting ready to show Robin Hood how to use a staff. 

Lap time along the trail with Howard

A whole bank of trees that tipped over in a wind storm, pulling the shallow roots up.

The kid gang at top of Cierra Lindo, a good full days hike from the Refuggio of Cierra Lindo.

Always adds to the adventure when your swaying plank bridge is missing a few planks......
Crossing the Rio Azul.

Yup, came all the way from Alaska to hike up to a glacier,
