After flying into Buenos Aires, we departed the next day for Bariloche, Argentina, on the northern edge of Patagonia. A short hike up Cerro Campenario gave us our first taste of the kinds of scenery we'd be seeing for the next few days.

The entire group took a cable car up Cerro Catedral, also not far from Bariloche, and spent the rest of the day hiking down from the summit. The horizon is dotted with Andean peaks, many of them volcanic in origin.

Above the falls on the Rio Serrano, we got our first look at the Torres del Paine park. From the left, Paine Grande, French Valley, the Cuernos del Paine, and just visible to the right of center, in the background, one of the towers from which the park gets its name.
