A Sunday in the snowy mountains is sometimes just what you need!
When Carlos suggested that we drive into the mountains on Sunday, of course I said yes! Especially because the mountains have been full of snow in the past few weeks so I knew it would be extra special! These mountains are around a two hour drive from Santiago, and the road leads to the Argentinian border.
Anyway, from the beginning. As we left Santiago, the mountains around the city looked like this and I was in awe! We drove to Los Andes, and then a little further up towards Portillo. There was snow on the ground and the most amazing views ahead. We wanted to get very close to the border of Argentina, as you get higher into the mountains which means more snow! But, when we got there we realised the border was closed, which often happens during the winter when there is too much snow as it has a close for safety reasons. I learnt that the hard way before, and got stuck in Argentina! (post here)
But, it was actually a great thing (unless you actually needed to cross the border) as it meant that everyone had to park their cars, meaning we had the whole road to walk along, with no cars!And just look at these snowy mountains… And waterfalls too… In some parts, the snow was much deeper than we thought! What a dreamy way to spend a Sunday, and so close to home too 🙂 Next time, we need to get further into the mountains!
