The Rio La Leona drains the sixty-mile-long Lago Viedma. Took this photo from the banks of the river near the old La Leona Hotel. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid once stopped here after having robbed a bank in Rio Gallegos. El Chalten, our destination for today, is still over 100 kilometers away.
A portion of the remarkable view from the hill behind the Hotel Edenia. Lago Argentino (the largest lake in Argentina) is in the middleground. It's sunny, warm and virtually windless today...that's the kind of Patagonian weather I like!
