The shore of Lago Escondido
The "Roman Bridge" was built many years ago by a local history buff. It is accessed from a hiking trail in Bariloche's Llao Llao Peninsula.
This photo shows the cane growing beneath the Coihue trees.
The towering Coihue trees have tiny, evergreen leaves, and sway in the strong winds.
Steve is trying to give you a sense of the scale of these enormous Coihue trees, myrtle trees from the time of Gondwanaland. Many specimens are 500 to 600 years old.
I think this is one of the native hollies, called Calafate. We found it near Lago Escondido, Bariloche. The berries of some of the varieties are delicious.
