Just a primer to the wildness of Patagonia. This is typical summer terrain outside of the mountainous areas where cattle and sheep are raised by leaving them alone for 6 months. The Gauchos or cowboys of Argentina eventually corrall them for slaughter. I went on a 4x4 4 hr trip to get an idea of the wilderness before my 2 weeks of adventure. the evening ended with rugged driving, great views, lamb on a spit ,range fed steak and Patagonian Malbec. A good primer indeed.
