Ruta de Siete Lagos

All of the seven lakes were perfectly blue.
After flying to Bariloche, we headed north on the Ruta de Siete Lagos, a truly breathtaking circuit.
Argentina is a (VERY) large country -- it was a two hour flight to Bariloche from Buenos Aires.

The first lake was amazing. My companion had to take a swim (in the very cold water).
The surroundings were quite arid, but filled with interesting plants.
The cushion plants were really interesting (to us botanists, at least).

The first waterfall of many!

Part of an alternative route took us over gravel roads, just a taste of what was to come.
