  • Okay completely take the detour from the RN 3 to petrified forest national monument. It is a unique place, since it is a forest of giant pine that was buried by ash from a violent eruption of one of the many volcanoes that surrounds the region. That sudden and violent event not incinerated trees, but retained them morphologically, and accelerated petrification process (Silicon ashes was replacing the carbon of the araucarias, "vitrifying them"). All this so they explain very kindly before starting the walk between the trunks, at the Museum's site, which is small but very complete. Walking always dominates the landscape the volcano mother and daughter in the background, which is the first thing we see when entering the Park. Gigantic trunks everywhere, make a surreal but very Patagonian view. The last point of the pedestrian circuit, a viewpoint of the Valley and the surrounding volcanoes, is like a Martian landscape, the icing on the cake. Not to be missed if you're strolling Santa Cruz.

  • If you explore the route 3 by Santa Cruz, you have to desvirte if, or to the forests, petrified, are 50 km of gravel. In place you have bathrooms and get you a Ranger that gives you an overview of the museum telling you the story and what you will see on the tour. At the end warns you that you have to check bags, purses or similar leave, clarified you that they are very strict on conservation. In the Museum there is a trunk with a note explaining that it was removed from the place by the family xxxx(dan nombre y apellido) to attempt to take it, they won't want to be in place. The walk up to the emblematic trunks is fabulous, one of 35m, another 3.5 in diameter among others. All in a place that summarizes our patagonia, dry, windy and with low-lying vegetation.
