Another Adventure in Patagonia


Since taking our first three day trek in Parque Nacional Nahuel HuapĂ­, Jeremy and I have been itching to do another. Once we made it safetly out of Chile, we embarked on our second three day adventure to Refugio Hielo Azul. We had a great time and luckily no toenails were lost. Our main obstacles were a three hour uphill climb, a long suspension bridge, some fairly easy boulder climbing, and a palm-sized spider that we spent the night hiding from and it ended up on my head. The highlights of this adventure being the incredible setup of the refugio (the US really needs more of these places), yoga each morning with the sound of the stream and view of the mountains, cooking for ourselves over an open fire, and playing Shithead in the dirt. The very best part of the trip though was on the second day when we came to an enormous glacier that ended in the most aweinspiring glacial lake surrounded by mountians. Jeremy and I had this day all to ourselves, without not another soul in sight. We spent hours watching it and listening to it's eerie cracking noises from within. These pictures don't even do it justice...
hmmm...for some reason the rest of the pics won't load...

Just checking out blogs, and thought I would stop and read yours since we have some of the same interests and ideas. Some ideas are a little much and some are right on. I am glad I stopped by just to say hi I hope you don't mind. Some people consider it spam I DON'T but if they don't want people to post why do they leave it open for the world to see. I have some great wedding information and articles available for free around 2000 savings ideas so stop on in if you want... I also have some of the most informative sites on yoga and baby gifts and baby showers. Hope you enjoy. Thank you for your time.yoga poses for hamstring injuries
