Today I attempted to get to a couple of cool sites along the Carretera Austral but the bus schedule did not work out so I decided I'll stay in Coyhuaque for 2 days. The weather was better today in town.

Today, I walked (a very long walk) to the Reserva Forestal Coyhuaque on the way there were flowers, alpaca, and countryside views.

Once in the reserve, there were trails in the flowers and bees, forest, moss covered trees, and several ponds. There were also several good viewpoints of Coyhuaque itself.

Once in town again, I was able to replace some shorts I left back a few hostel's back for $8 at a local store. they also had a North Face strore that was more pricey than at home.

Tonight, I had a great meal, a fish dish at a local restaurant recommended by the hostel receptionist. Then upon returning to the hostel, the japanese couple left back at Rio Tranquilo arrived in town.

That Alpaca is hot!

I burst out laughing when I saw the look on the face of that alpaca! It reminds me of Lamb Chop. You are probably too young to know who that is. Shari Lewis was a ventriloquist back in the 60s that had a sock puppet named Lamb Chop.
