Spring in the mountains

Argentina blessed us with beautiful weather. We heard tales of biting cold only days before we arrived, so I packed all my warm clothes.

When we arrived, spring was in full glory, with a warm sun illuminating the fresh plant life of spring.

It made for nice little hikes and stunning views in between our fruitfull discussions at the hotel.

You do not need to go far to find beauty in this place. As soon as you look out the window, wherever you look, the lake is always there. Around every corner, its beauty shines through the trees or enrolls at your feet.

In the morning, the window view is even more impressive.

The warm beautiful spring weather also revealed tons of alien species. No place seems better suited for a conference on invasion ecology than this beautiful landscape, overgrown as it is with exotic species.

It almost felt like coming home in some forest parts, with vegetation almost completely based on European and North-American species. Today, we will have a closer look at local invasions and how managers deal with them.
