2015 Travel Blog

Our third night at La Huela Camp on Lago Roca was yet again a nice peaceful one…that is until the Blonde decided at 5.30 am it was time to exit…the promise of another spectacular sunrise. I stayed put!

 We left Largo Yehuin at 8am. It had been a disturbed night for me, what with the drums from the “alternative folk", in their teepees in the field next door and the music and the constant procession of youngsters walking up and down the shingle beach past our camp.

A free camp by the side of Rio Gallegos….I woke up feeling a little better…stage 4 of my cold now. We were in no rush to get away. 

So here we are two weeks into our planned 4 month trip around Argentina and Chile. This is our first visit to South America and we are talking this opportunity to give us a taste of what is to come and primarily to decide what vehicle we should use....we fear that Big Henry maybe just too BIG.

January 11 - 17, 2014 - So on the Monday morning and the start of another week…..back onto Interstate 8….we stuck Big H. on cruise and then watched the miles drift by as we headed further into the southern Arizona desert.

The Big Bend NP is named after the vast curve of the Rio Grande in remote southwest Texas, which forms the border between Texas and Mexico. It is a wildly beautiful natural region, with a complex and fascinating history.

The weather forecast was true to form again and Wednesday dawned bright but cool, but more importantly the freezing fog had left us…

Big Bend National Park, South West Texas…… it was never on our itinerary and when you think we almost decided not to make the trip south to this area….well it has been just a great visit.

After all our exertions in White Sands National Park, New Mexico, we camped up for Sunday night @ Lake Holloman. The Blonde had a nice afternoon saunter around the lake with her binoculars and I did some routine maintenance stuff with Big Henry. Beautiful sunset….yet again.

It was a week of not much movement! After our exertions in Joshua Tree National Park, and in particular that stunning climb for the views on Mt. Ryan, we headed further south again

On New Years Day 2015, we were camped out at the Salton Sea in southern California. A two day stopover to view the birdlife here had now turned into a full week and we were still reluctant to move on.
