Hike up Cerro Llao Llao

March 14, 2008

After a late start–like all the starts on this trip, Anders has been sleeping until 8:30 or 9:00!–we dropped off some laundry and headed back into the national park for a little hike.

The trail up Cerro Llao Llao is short, but quite steep and at the top there are wonderful views of Lago Nahuel Huapi and the mountains beyond. We took an extra moment to soak in the views today because tomorrow we head south to Esquel.

Anders is turning into quite the little hiker. He walked much more than I expected and seemed to delight in every step. He loves stopping and checking out rocks and feeling plants.
