Then you visit the historical site of Hotel La Leona, and continue 10 km along the southern shore of Lake Viedma until Cerro Los Hornos (Estancia Santa Teresita). You start to explore the Petrified Forest, along the Great Depression and began your exploration walk among fossils. Halfway you stop for lunch. Throughout the walk you will see a lots of petrified logs lying on the surface, some with a diameter of 1.20 meters.
