I just had to share a few photos from our latest section. We are still trying to adjust to the remarkable scenery after months on end of altiplano, desert, and pampas. Within an hour of pedaling AND without any elevation change, we literally left the desert and entered a region with snowcapped peaks, humungous trees, crystal clear creeks, waterfalls, etc. Yesterday we even jumped off a bridge into a creek and took an icy swim.
We are stoked to have Antonio (dude on the short bike in the photos)…a rider from Spain joining us for a bit. Thanks to a bit of oversight on our part, we managed to celebrate Thanksgiving a day earlier, then met a great couple from South Dakota on a tandem the following day – and they asked us what we were doing for Thanksgiving… hmm… another feast!!!!
