Queulat National Park (another hike)
A magical park in Chilean Patagonia, along the Carretera Austral, is Queulat National Park.
The hikes, views, etc. were all wonderful: the link takes you to previous posts.
Here are a few images and thoughts around our last hike before we moved south.
We had looked for this trail before, and hadn't found the trailhead (the road was REALLY challenging), and our lodging was at the base of the road. It climbed up over the pass, full of gravel, deep ruts, and slippery patches -- a bit daunting, actually. We'd been glad to go back downhill the previous day.
But, after a young park ranger told us, yes, the Enchanted Forest trail is still open, we measured mileage carefully (again) and finally found the trail head, amid the rubble of road construction.
