Comparing the paper map...



...and the photo on my phone of Google Earth...



...we spot a town. Piedra.

We're off!

Of course, now it begins to rain...



Just a sprinkle compared to yesterday.

We make our way back down the 8 kilometers of dirt that was the last leg of yesterday's journey...



Reaching the bottom, we hang a right. This should be taking us norte.

A couple of stops to take in the misty view...



...



"No need to worry about the stray wires, Dave..."



...



We move on, carefully picking the wrong forks...



"That name sounds familiar...think I recall seeing that on the map..."



...



...



"Dunno if we're on the right track or not but those roads on those ridges over there are what I'm talking about!"



We pick our way in the general direction...



...



...



We're gaining some altitude...



...



...



...



...further down the trail...



Down one of our many deadends we run into none other than Juan Valdez.



Until Dave catches up we have a rather awkward 'conversation' as I fumble through trying to figger out where this road leads. Dave catches up and saves the day. Not sure if we actually gain anything other than we'd be turning around soon but it is fun interacting.

A few more kilometers...



...a few more stops...



...and finally, we find what we're looking for...
