Arizona’s Carey Hughes told me about this one too.  The Cordillera Huayhuash: an 8-day loop of green lakes, conical serenity and a whole lot of freshwater trout. Another one of the best hikes on the planet.
In Bariloche, Argentina, when I wasn’t eating Mamushka chocolates, I was hanging in Nahuel Huapi.  After 5 weeks of “serious business” Patagonia hiking, some casual day-strolls through this park did me really, really good.  A very beautiful place; see for yourself!
One day in Florianópolis, Brazil, I went for a walk with a new friend.  Before departure, we split one of the special brownies Mariana gave me in São Paulo.  Upon passing the rocks of Praia Mole, I felt inspired.  I came back the next day and took some pictures.  
There’s really nothing quite like Rio de Janeiro.  My words can hardly do this place justice; I won’t even try.  Maybe the pictures will do you better.
