Our day trip into the Conguillío National Park was a definite highlight of El Huevito’s trip to Chile. The park lies at the northern tip of the Lake District, and envelopes the 3125m Llaima Volcano. It’s a wild, beautiful and otherwordly place, a lunar landscape where islands of fertile earth lie stranded between lava flows frozen in time – or at least until the next eruption. Sunshine at this time of year can be fleeting, but the autumnal colours are a beautiful recompense.
If you would like to keep up with where I am between blog entries, I try and keep my While Out Riding Facebook page regularly updated – along with posting extra photos and gear ponderings. You can find it here, where plenty more El Huevito photos are to be found.
