LOGISTICS

From our meeting point, we will continue by automobile to the parking site (5 minutes). From here, a 25 minute hike will take us to the entry point for the Grognardo. This is a small but very interesting canyon, a concentration of beauty,  and the final narrows are a real surprise!  The Grognardo is a tributary of the Argentina canyon. Just before the confluence of the two canyons, we will exit the Grognardo to reach the entry point to the Argentina canyon along a hiking trail. The water is always plentiful and transparent, jumps and slides are ensured! The Argentina canyon is a beauty to behold and fun!
