After dinner in Coyhaique, we stopped for a coffee and as we looked out the window that light was amazing.... Diana and I jump up to get some photos...
Was too bad we were right in town and not up a bit higher from the buildings. But the colors in the sky were amazing!
Next morning the 27th we keep riding south ...... Knowing that this is a great road but not exactly sure what to expect. We had 40 miles of nice pavement, including this..... Great road and amazing views!
We stop in Cerro Castillo, and had breakfast in the bus!
The KiWi's are blogging there trip as well, so, got to have a photo of this meal!!
Through the mountains and along the rivers....
Some road greading being down. The gravel surface changes through the day from "marbles", too hard pack, to loose graded, to slightly sandy....
As I have seen along the journey roadside memorials
Ken adds a Radiomanridestheworld.com sticker to his collection!
As we roll along though the dusty roads, the scenery is great, but you feel small is the spaces...
We passed 4-5 old cars doing the drive heading north!
Some really nice waterfalls...
One of the stops we had planned was the Capilla de Marmut "marble Caves" in Rio Trnaquillo
Sun came out as we found a boat to take us there...
They are an amazing sight to see
He guides that boat into a few of the caves
Dick, Diana and Ken enjoying checking out the marble
Will let the photos do the talking .....
The color of the lake was amazing
It was an interesting 1.5 hour side trip to see this place
As we got off our boat I ran into Marco and his wife who are from Germany and I had met in Puyhuaipi
Then back on the bikes to ride the last hour down to Puerto Guadal
Too much great scenery to share!!
We ride to Terra Luna which is our hotel for teh night that is on the lake. Sun is shining and the views amazing. Crystal the host, gets us settled into a room, then brings us some Beer to enjoy while sitting on the deck!!

Proudly displaying her Triumph connection on her T shirt!
Then we had dinner, and Ken was procuring some wine for dinner!
Crystal making sure we had everything we needed at dinner. Again sporting her Triumph gear
