I went back to browse the travelogues of Jeffrey Poznanovic.
After seeing his pics of a 6-day trek through Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi, I was tempted to start brushing up on Spanish and shop for airline tickets to South America.

We’ve listed the Nahuel Huapi Traverse one of the best hikes in the world.
It’s perhaps the best hike in the superb Argentinian Lake district, a wilderness of granite spires & gorgeous lookouts. The location is perfect, only 20km by bus from the outdoor adventure town of Bariloche.
The Villa Catedral to Puente Lopez route is 36.5km (23mi) plus sidetrips, 5 days, 4 nights recommended. Wind and cold are the biggest challenges.
On a related matter, MyOutdoors.net has added KLM data for some of their hikes.
This is pretty geeky stuff. To try it out you need a fast computer, high speed internet connection and to download a (free) copy of Google Earth software.
Oh, and lots of time. You might get hooked flying over the Earth checking out future adventures.
