A gem of a national park in Argentina, Nahuel Haupi was the third national park created in the world, following Banff/Lake Louise and Yellowstone. Apparently, Teddy Roosevelt visited here in the 30’s extolling the virtues of setting aside natural land for all to enjoy. This area includes the Lakes District, which is a stunning array of lakes surrounded by mountain peaks, the tallest of which is Catedral, at 7,880 ft. Between peaks, the passes allow access through the Andes mountains to Chile. Beautiful!!!
