Trekking in Huerquehue NP

Location: Pucon, Chile

Given time restraints we wont be hiking in Bariloche (unfortunately), so this is our last hike (I can here the knees shouting for joy) before sending the gear back home. The park is about 25/30km from Pucon, so its easy to get to.

Lago Verde#1. If the water wasn´t so chilly we would have been in for a dip.

Lago Tinquilco with Villarrica in the background. Sheer bliss clear skies again.

Lago Verde#2. This lake, like all the others we have come across in the area, is crystal clear.

Spectacular Aruacania tree which apparently can live for up to 2000 years.

Nuts from the Aruacania tree which the native Puelche people used to grind up for flour. These ones got roasted later that night - they taste quite a bit like chestnuts.

This is the camp site, but someone forgot to tell the cows. Makes for cautious walking in the dark, but otherwise we managed to avoid getting trampled whilst asleep in the tent.

On the rail on the final day - it is hard to see it from this photo, but there´s a nice steep drop off to my right along this bit.
