Monte Hermoso Ultimate Carnaval

Ultimate Frisbee is the best sport in the world, and might only be made better when played on a spectacular beach. Had possibly one of the best weekends of my life. Time to start following beach ultimate tournaments where ever I can. Monte Hermoso Carnaval was BANGERANG!

Salta, Argentina

Salta is the largest city in the Northwest of Argentina and is the traditional colonial center. It wasn’t my favorite place in the country, but has a fantastic traditional music scene, and loads of restaurants put on dances, concerts, and plays during dinner. I got to see a show and absolutely fell in love with The Salta Andina Trio, by far the best music I have heard in Argentina. Enjoy!

 

This isn’t the band I saw, but it is similar and they are playing one of the songs I heard.

Santiago, Chile

Made it into Chile to see Santiago and my old coworker and friend Rachel Shaefer. We worked together at Water Street Brewery and she is one of the first people that told me I could make it to Argentina and that I should go. She is a major reason I made it here and I was very glad to see her, thanks Rachel.

Bariloche

Bariloche is the Swiss Alps of Argentina. It is beautiful and laid back, and was a lovely time. Check it out.

 

El Chalten

After El Calafate I made it to the trekking capital of Argentina, El Chalten. A super tiny town that has exploded with hiking and camping fanatics of all kinds the past two years. I had some pretty bad weather which was a major bummer, but still got to take in some of Patagonia´s beautiful landscape. A highlight was the peak Monte Fitz Roy.

El Calafate y Perito Moreno

After a great few days in Ushaia, I started moving north up the Andes through Argentine Patagonia beginning in El Calafate. The town isn´t a whole lot to see, but its allure is the fact that it is the jumping off point for one of the world´s most spectacular glaciers, Perito Moreno. If you have read any of the Song of Ice and Fire series, they speak of a wall of ice, well this is it.

I took 100 more pictures like these, and I have never had so much fun sitting and watching ice.
