A SCENIC DRIVE

One of the most popular and scenic driving excursions, the Circuitous Chico begins on Av Bastillo, on Bariloche’s outskirts and continues to the tranquil resort of Llao Llao.

The road borders luxury homes and apartments along the Nahuel Huapi Lake. Tim pulled over to show me a unique hotel.

It was a lovely sunny day – many bicycles shared the road with the cars. We drove through forests and stopped at places on the Lake, finally coming to a viewpoint of such beauty, my photography could not do it justice.

I COULD HAVE INHALED THE CLEAR FRESH AIR AND GAZED AT THE MOUNTAINS AND WATER FOR HOURS BUT WITH A PROMISE TO RETURN, I AGREED TO LEAVE.

NO – THIS IS NOT A YOGA POSE, JUST LONG LEGS AND BIG FEET IN A SMALL CAR.
