As a matter of reference, we're heading in a sorta Northwesterly direction, and that large mountain in the background that you just saw was Volcano Cotacachi at 4939 mtrs. We continued northwesterly towards the little towns called Apuela and then Penaherrara, for no particular reason. We subscribe to the loose concept of dead reckoning navigation and planning. We look at the map...pick a area that looks good to ride in for one reason or the other, then try to get there. We quickly are finding out that map accuracy is horrible and the gps is of very little use the farther out we get from the main roads.




We're riding in and out of clouds...




I thought there were no rules in Ecuador...







We're riding along minding our own business when Mike makes this awesome discovery.....





We're actually in Jurassic Park......the worm that eats the bird. We could actually see it's mouth it was so big...





There was quite a bit of construction going on in certain areas....damn engineers taking the twists and turns out of the road, preparing for touristas






Then back in the clouds...





Drop offs of several hundred feet are routine
