Lake Nahuel Huapi - a video and a map


This will be my last post for 2009. A long year is coming to an end. Personally it has been a very positive year in many nice ways. Lets all hope that 2010 is even better for all of us.

Happy New Year!

Video showing Lake Nahuel Huapi - Nahuelito's home

Below is a video I uploaded on YouTube. I filmed it last Sunday (27.10.09) close to Villa Campanario, Peninsula San Pedro, San Carlos de Bariloche. It shows Lake Nahuel Huapi.

I filmed the video facing northwards, the left side of the image is the west. In the middle is Victoria Island, (see my post on Patagonian bears). To the right (east) of it, is Peninsula Huemul. Behind the Peninsula is the lake's Huemul Fjord where Garrett saw Nahuelito in 1910. At the extreme right is the tip of San Pedro Peninsula and (out of the image) about 200 m (650 ft.) behind me is "Campanario Fjord", where Nahuelito was also sighted.

In the audio, the wind can be heard. The relentless Patagonian wind. It is midday on a slightly cloudy and very cold Summer day. Due to the season, the lake's level is quite high (see how the bushes on the rocky beach are awash in the waves). As summer advances, the water level drops leaving a beach about 15 m (45 ft.) wide.

  1. In case you wonder what the previous comment means, I translated it (it is written in Chinese characters). According to my online translator, the comment is:
    "Walks toward the established objectives, will not lose".
