Long-time hiking buddy, Peter Groves, has produced a monumental work that documents our three weeks in Buenos Aires and Patagonia recently. It is liberally illustrated with his magnificent photos. I highly recommend a visit.
Peter’s not in the photo above because he took it… Left to right: Andre, Billa, Harald, Kelson, Xandra, Ralph, Elena, Claire.
