Day 132 : Baraloche to Bush Camp

The next stop was a region of Argentina known for its glaciers and it would take us two days to drive to the town of El Chaltãn. The highlight of this travel day was getting a flat tire, our first breakdown in four months. The tire was changed quickly enough and it wasn’t too long after this that we pulled up at a clear area by the road for a bush camp.

Another clear day was followed by a clear night and thankfully not much wind. The starry night sky contained the southern cross, it’s always good to see this particular formation and for me I feel that I’m that much closer to home. We had marshmallows around the campfire after dinner and then found our way to our tent, drive days always tiring.
