The Huilo Huilo Natural Reserve covers about 120,000 acres in central Southern Chile in a region known as the Seven Lakes. The reserve, a private ecotourism enterprise, was created in 1999. This was the last location on our day trip from Pucon, Chile, and it was a magical experience. We spent a few hours wandering along the paths around the Nothofagus Hotel, passing amazing waterfalls and through beautiful forests.

The venomous Chilean Recluse spider builds these irregular webs. When I first came across it I thought perhaps it was a spider on LSD or with a terrible hang-over.

So, more to come. Love to hear what you have to say about our travels.
