A couple of kilometers outside of Chile Chico is the Lago Jeinimeni National Reserve. It is a beautiful reserve that runs parallel to the Argentinian border that contains rivers, lakes, mountains and tons of wildlife. We had previously learned that the reserve contained one of Patagonia's hidden gems, cave paintings. They are not easily accessed which meant that we had to do a "4 km" hike to get to them. We began to climb at 11:30am and by 2:30pm we still hadn't reached them so we decided to keep hiking our own way (we would continuosly find and lose a not so clear trail). We saw beautiful landscapes, tons of live animals and dead ones too unfortunately. While driving to get to the reserve we had to cross a river so we had to get back early afternoon so we wouldn't get stuck.
It was a beautiful day to enjoy with friends, nature and sun.
