It's an adventure for sure. Will have to see how this one works out before looking too far ahead. Still think that I've got plenty to learn.
Eating way too much. Would have been an advantage to know Spanish but not the worse thing in the world to keep working on.

Green Baker Lodge, Puerto Bertrand

Fun day to hang out at the Green Baker Lodge.




Plenty to do but the whitewater rafting was not available to us.









Wood heated hot tub. I couldn't find a photo that I took of the tub so I copied this from their website.



View from the hot tub.




We had to substitute canopy riding.








Makes a quick ride across the river.
























Typical house along the road.









For Colleen




Another view from the tub.

Ride to Coihaiqui. 240km 6-7 hr ride.

















































As beautiful as the pictures are it just doesn't do justice to the variety and the frequency of the changing landscape. Have to be here to feel it.
Tomorrow we will be in Puyuhuapi, a remote area where there will not be any cell or WIFI coverage. About 224 km north of here. The lodge is accessible by boat only 16 km south of town. Catch up with you all in a couple of days.

Coihaique to Puyuhuapi Lodge & Spa.

Left Coihaique early and headed north.













We stopped at a couple of outdoor shrines on the way. One was dedicated to St. Sabastian and the other was to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception located next to the twin virgin falls..


















My Spanish translator won't work here. Will have to find out what it says later.

I have some catching up to do since there was no WIFI at Puyuhaupi Lodge.













Manihaules

















Lunch break in Villa Amengual.
















Hugh bumble bee. Largest I've ever seen. At least 2" long.








Boat landing where we get picked up to go to the lodge. It is only accessible by water. Built by some German fellow in the 80's.































Pathway to the outdoor hot springs pool.



Heated indoor pool and hat tubs. Weight room on the 2nd floor.

Highlight of today was checking out the ranch that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid lived in for three or 4 years, 1901-1905, before they decided to go back to bank robbing.
