View Austral (Southern) Adventure on judgelarry's travel map.

on January 2, we visited sites around Filadelfia including some battlefields and fortification remnants from the Chaco War in the 1930s. Driving in a great circle on dirt roads, we also encountered a good deal of wildlife. 20190102_085319.jpg03d77460-105f-11e9-b77c-ff15515a57c5.JPG12c63d30-105f-11e9-98b2-5d7966741d40.JPG58464040-105e-11e9-a454-696f9e062629.JPGDSCN4917.JPG4c6c7fa0-105e-11e9-a454-696f9e062629.JPG4fdbb5c0-105e-11e9-a454-696f9e062629.JPGe9558650-105d-11e9-a454-696f9e062629.jpg
