Pony Homecoming

We got our van back! Tuesday afternoon, as Team USA was losing to Team Belgium, we took Milo in a rental car and drove down to Port Hueneme in Ventura County. We were a bit apprehensive, as the month of…

In Patagonia

We love Patagonia. The Chilean side had completely different vegetation, almost like a rain forest. After rain finally drove us off Chiloe Island, we camped our last night in this really cool forest preserve in Aracuria, where they had really…

From East to West

After leaving Punta Alta, we traversed Argentina from its Atlantic Coast to its Western edge, in a matter of days. This meant crossing the low-lying plains of La Pampa. It felt like driving through the Great Plains on any rural…

To the Sea

Here’s Juan and Milo’s photo shoot at Punta Baja, a jutting peninsula that’s a rocky drive from El Rosario. After leaving El Rosario, we crossed Parallelo 28 into Baja California Sur, which is one hour ahead of Baja California. We…
