Fortunately, Lindholm had saved the best spot for last.
We pulled up to the La Yesera trailhead about half an hour later, and as soon as I looked out the window and saw the epic scene laid out in front of us my fatigue faded.
Except for Lindholm, who was keen to get us to one final location for our photo tour as any good guide does.
Somewhat begrudgingly and longing for a nap, we eventually managed to pull ourselves away from what remained of the feast and make our way back to the van.
However, I was a bit too busy jumping for joy at the scene spread out before us to take notes.As night fell, a glorious sunset rose up behind the vineyards, making for the perfect ending to our photogenic journey through Argentina’s Calchaqui Valley.YOU MIGHT ALSO ENJOY: Patagonia itinerary: How to spend one week exploring southern Argentina Ice-trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina La Boca: The most photogenic spot in Buenos Aires, Argentina SHARE THE PINSPIRATION!Imagine steep, red canyon walls rising up toward the bluebird sky and creating a natural amphitheatre.Sun-soaked vineyards and bustling, lively town plazas.
