Esquel, Argentina to Bariloche!
As I rode into Esquel, sure enough there were large gas lines ….. and they stayed all night long
So we decided to set the alarm for 5:30 am…. And we had just 15 minute wait
Saying goodbye to the Owner Hugo and His darling wife Maria. Hotel Sur Sur is a great place for a nice hotel. Hugo has his BMW in the lobby 🙂 They have ridden in many places in the world!
Then we are off to the national parque Los Alerces (we were going to camp there as it is beautiful but I got waylaid
Past some Guacho’s herding cattle
It is a beautiful park with lakes and mountains. Lots of really nice camping spots but we are riding to Bariloche.
Great gravel road through about half the park.
Then north through El Bolson area
Youngest Ollie is still with me
We arrive to Bariloche and it is a busy place this time of year. Sunny 80 degrees F Stopped at a few hostels and final found one with opening.
The little beach was crowded!
First night we met up with Drew and Luuk and Inge from Holland, and had a great meal . Photos with the owner and the chef!
