Dear Jim:

In February my family and I went to the south of Argentina by car in a round trip of 10,300 km (more than 6,400 miles). I believe that Pakyak is the only way to take a kayak with us on such a trip.

We visited the very far city of Ushuaia (Sorry, no pics) in Tierra del Fuego and then went to the magnificent glacier "Perito Moreno" in National Park "Los Glaciares".

One lake where I paddled is Lake Futalaufquen in the National Park. "Los Alerces" These first pictures were taken there.

I took these next photos in National Park "Los Glaciares".

These were only a few of many, many lakes of Patagonia. I hope You will like them.

Best Regards
