View down a valley on the Carretera Austral. This was our lunch stop.
A lovely place to stop, well one of the many lovely places to stop along The Carretera Austral is Puerto Tranquilo, and from here you can take a lovely boat trip to the Cuevas de Marmol which are a set of marble caves on the lake shore south of the village , of which the most spectacular is the Capilla de Marmol otherwise known as Marble Chapel. The boat really maneuvers in through them and you can see the many different colors shapes and shadows in the very clear water. The caves are really the product of river erosion , hard to believe this can happen to marble !
We loved the light reflecting onto the rocks
Peeking in to the Cathederal
Underwater was as spectacular as above the waterline
Reflection or not….
And then there were 2….
Inside the Cathedral is simply stunning.
The boat came right into the cave. Jurgen was shooting just about as much as I was.
a small graveyard with what looks like small huts.
Flipping Freo. Must be French for something…

Many hands make light work. Sorry, Snapper humor.
This was a bit of a disappointment, and not really worth the visit.
