Photographer's Note

This is a view in the seven lakes route, while returning back to Bariloche by ruta 40, at the east border of Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi. Unfortunately I don't know the name of this lake. Might be the 'embalse of Alicurá' but I'm not sure. It isn't one of the seven in the route because it's just outside of the perimeter of the Park...there's so much water in this enchanting region.

Seven Lake Route (info from Wikipedia):

The Road of the Seven Lakes (Spanish: Camino de los Siete Lagos) is the popular name given to the provincial route 234 between San Martín de los Andes and Villa La Angostura in the Neuquén Province, Argentina.

The 107 km dirt road that crosses the Lanín and Nahuel Huapi national parks provide access to several lakes in the forestial area of the Patagonic Andes, as well as to other sights.

The seven most important lakes of the road after which the route is named are:

Machónico
Escondido
Correntoso
Espejo
Lácar
Falkner
Villarino
Other lakes accessible through secondary paths include the Meliquina, Hermoso, Traful and Espejo chico lakes.
