Adventures in Chile, maybe beyond! These pix and tales are from a two+ week trip to the Lakes District in Chile, this February. Along with 8 other folks, I had a blast in a kayak school conducted by the unmatched Long Family of Cascade Raft and Kayak School, Payette, Idaho. (www.cascaderaft.com). Lots of us SoCal boaters know the extended Long family and have taken other instruction with them in Idaho and near Kernville, CA, thus the level of familiarity.
Prior to the kayak part I also spent some time in Valparaiso and Santiago with a pal. This blogging software is much better for handling photos, but I found it too late. Tales and pix from the first part of my trip (including Termas, hot springs visits) and the incredible murals of Valparaiso are on another blog. Take a look - www.kimmiecal.blogspot.com. And if you are looking for travel info searching through blogs, feel free to contact me. Some of the places I went and am happy to share include; Termas (Huife & Trancura), B & B in Santiago and Valparaiso (The Yellow House), some mountain biking around Pucon, plus kayaking on the Upper and Lower Trancura, Rio Fuy and San Pedro Rivers.
That thing eating my head in the picture is one of two English bulldog puppies owned by the proprietors of the Yellow House B & B in Valpo. See his brother behind me. Love bullies!
