Ruta de Siete Lagos (Seven Lake Route)

The next day we took the amazing dirt road that winds around majestic mountains, glacial lakes and tall forests. It took the better part of the day and at times we confronted rain and fog. But the sun appeared and allowed us to get snap happy with the cameras as the following sampling will show.

Drizzle, wind and ominous clouds couldn’t stop us from taking the scenic beauty in from out of the car.

The town of San Martin de Los Andes sits at the southern end of yet another lake. Parks, wide streets, cafés and cold beer make it perfect for another stop along the route.
