Thanks to the particular coloration that takes starting from March this species emblemática of the forests andonipatagónicos, the forests seem to even revive in autumn more than in spring.
An option to enjoy these landscapes in a noon trip is the ascension in van 4x4 to the hill López, 35 kilometers to the Northwest of Bariloche (1.430 meters high). In the road we cross forests of towering 150 year-old coihues that hide the course serpenteante of some streams that get off the mountain forming big cascades.
In the natural balconies we stop to observe the admired red forests and orange of the autumnal lenga, and we follow the ascension for a road full with puddles of water and salient of rock. The van staggers strongly like in all good trip of adventures. The on the way to cornice presents the first manchones of snow and a hare is crossed at full speed before the Land Rover.
The walk finishes with a visit to Colony Switzerland, a town of Swiss-French immigrants where we stop to take hot chocolate with a plate of homemade tarts for two people.
