The ride Oaxaca to Zipolite

The ride from Oaxca to Zipolite is a hell of a rdie. So twisty you have to wonder how they ever dreamed of builing a road through those mountains. Haipins, climbs, descents, no shoulder no guardrail, rough pavement, no warning signs, or very few. I laughed out loud when i saw a yellow sign (the first one I saw in about 90 miles of Camino Sinuoso) warning of a curve ahead. hahahaha.

there are not many places to stop and take a picture, just nowhere, so the few I got really don't show the most beautiful parts. Steep green valleys, houses built on ridgelines like a giant's staircase, tiny tiendas (stores) and comedors (small restaurants) clinging to cliff sides. Abslolutely wonderful




You would not want to go flying into these weeds


















Average pavement but it gets a lot rougher







This memorial to a yong man was in a hairpin with a huge rock wall. The candle was lit even though this was in what seemed to be a very remote spot






Check out the view from this restaurant!
