Visual tour of La Pampa

La Pampa is not known as one of the tourist traps of Argentina.  In fact, very few tourists make their way through the area aside from passing through, which some guide books actually suggest (lonelyplanet said it is a place without interests, but conveniently located in between Buenos Aires and the various attractions along the Andes making it an ok location for spending the night).  However, La Pampa has numerous outstanding qualities and is beautiful in it’s own right if you have the opportunity to actually get out and see it (ie if you have a field project that takes you out to the field at least half a week every week).  Here are some photos of the place I called home for three months:

About svej1argentina

Hi! My name is Lauren and I am a graduate student at New Mexico State University in the department of Plant and Environmental Sciences. My current residence is in La Pampa, Argentina working on an international collaboration project on State-and-Transition Modeling and Ecological Site Description of the Caldenal Ecoregion. Coordination of the project has involved professionals from NMSU, USDA-ARS Jornada Experimental Range, Universidad Nacional de La Pampa, and Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) and has had financial support from Aggies Go Global. Our goal is to develop a spatial perspective of the Caldenal through field sampling, modeling and statistical analysis and create a base for management planning and strategies implemented at the landowner and gubernatorial levels.
