As a lifelong resident of Southeastern Michigan, he began by driving around to places nearby his home. As he ventured, he found places that he never stopped at before.

Our wonderful tour of Patagonia sites continues with the Lago Grey Path. Our van pulled up to the beginning of the path almost an hour after lunch, and we carried our sluggish bodies out of the van. This was one of the last stops of the tour and we had already been dumbfounded by the wildlife and wide landscape that we have seen along the way.
