Lake Nahuel Huapi, San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina

A scenic twenty hour bus ride south from the city of Mendoza, we arrived in the city of San Carlos de Bariloche in the Patagonia region of Argentina with just a short amount of time before darkness would come. As we walked to the Nahuel Huapi Lake, we came upon a couple walking to the water’s edge. It was a peaceful walk and even though we were freezing (it was winter in Argentina), we enjoyed seeing one of the beautiful lakes of the Lake District. We debated whether we should make the long trek to Bariloche since the days were winding down for our time in Argentina, but this trip was well worth it. The city was charming – streets of wooden buildings, factories full of the famous Bariloche chocolate, and huge St. Bernard dogs walking around taking photos with people. We were even greeted with snow the next morning!
