What long weekend is complete without mountains, sun, a picnic and friends? And sometimes it feels like you have to travel far away for those things. But, would you believe me if I told you that this photo was taken in Santiago?
And this too…
They really were!
Santuario de la Natureleza el Arrayán is somewhere we discovered by chance. Months ago, when I went to have my wedding hair trial we saw a sign for it, and finally we took advantage of the long weekend and went along yesterday. It is technically in Santiago, just on the edge and doesn’t take long to drive there at all. But, it feels like you are miles away from the city.
Despite the hot temperatures, and pure blue skies there were also the first signs of autumn to be seen. Though I think we still have a while to enjoy the summer like sun 🙂
And when you are done, you wish goodbye to the tranqulity and bundle into the car only to be home in around 40 minutes. What a beautiful slice of nature!
How have you spent your long weekend?
