And here I thought cowboys were extinct. Well, turns out you have to go to the ends of the earth, all the way to Patagonia to find the Gaucho, the Chilean version of a cowboy. This land of inexplicable beauty in the Aysen region of Chile had it's first dirt path as recently as 2000.
It's where the behemoth Andes mountains hug the striking shoreline of the Lake General Carrerra, creating a beautiful juxtaposition of glacial rivers, commanding hills and virgin forests. It's a horseback ride for the ages combined with a once in a lifetime experience of exploring these natural reserves with the Gauchos that inhabit it. What could possibly make it better?! Oh right, it's the "I can hardly believe this is real" marble caves that I never thought existed outside of National Geographic. In a perfect mix of the outdoors and culture, I found unforgettable sights on mountain tops and experienced the unique culture and cuisine of the Gaucho around campfires and under the Patagonia night sky.
