No one else on the track, the crisp morning dew kissing the long grass as we headed towards Cerro Llao Llao. One of the first walks we did in Bariloche as a family, and definitely an impressive one!

My legs were burning, but dodging the toxic fumes in between happy snaps was definitely my priority as we walked around the perimeter of the smouldering crater.
