Chile 2014: Chilling with Nature at Corral del Agua

Corral del Agua 1

Our two-night stay at Corral del Agua ranch was a welcome break from technology, with no internet access or cell phone service, and it was a chance to rediscover our more carefree selves in nature. Our activities included hiking to a nearby waterfall, sharing laughter and music around the fire pit, and riding horses through a field bordered by forest and grazing cows. At Corral del Agua, we focused on one of the important concepts of the Introduction to Human Ecology course; to want to preserve nature, it is important to care about it, and one of the best ways to learn to care about nature is through direct contact. So even relaxing, when we’re outdoors, is part of our learning and part of the work we traveled so far to do.

Next up: working on research project and visiting Ojos de Carburgua park.
