USA | Sun, 4 Sep 2011 | By mdcamps | Views [281]

USA | Mon, 29 Aug 2011 | By mdcamps | Views [324]

CANADA | Tue, 12 Oct 2010 | By elis82 | Views [778]

The last couple of days in the Canadian Rockies was pretty cool. Jasper was really cool, and we'd have loved to have had a couple of extra days to spend there, but we had to get back to Whistler for the Great Turkey Sale, held each Canadian Thanksgiving ... Read more >

El Chalten

ARGENTINA | Sun, 9 Mar 2008 | By katrinamckeever | Views [1030]

Eager to claw back some cash after the finance draining excess of the Merino glacier, we took our wee tent up the road to El Chalten, a lovely little town at the base of Fitzroy mountain where the camping is free. The downside is there is no shower ... Read more >
