The day after our hike up Cerro Negro, we decided to take it easy and hike to a couple of waterfalls which were just a few kilometers above the beautiful town of Villa Traful. (The guys agree that Villa Traful should be refered to as a settlement since it is too small to call it a town.)
Just as we passed one of the last homes, we met a friendly dog which Noah named "Sly". Noah names most of the dogs that we meet on the trip. Sly hiked with us to both of the cascadas and then continued on with us to the alfajore bakery which was located on the edge of town. The guys have been sampling alfajores throughout our trip. Upon tasting the alfajores Del Montanes, they unanimously agreed that these are the best alfajores in Argentina. (which is the same as saying that they are the best in the world)
We got back to camp where Julio and his asado apprentice, Mike, got busy cooking our steaks. When the wind, hail, and rain arrived, they improvised a metal rain construction over the fire that worked perfectly.
The following morning we broke camp and headed
west along the lake to Cataracas Falls.
There, we freshened up in the ice cold water before heading on to San Martin de Los Andes.
