Day 146 Another WOW Day

Day 146 La Junta to Coyhaique January 28

View Larger Map

What an absolutely fabulous day today. The morning started with a visit from the cyclist Joanna who was riding by our hostel as we loaded the bikes. She had camped at the spot we met her last night and we were indeed surprised to see her. We saw her again at the gas station a few minutes later, and once again as we got moving.

The ripio was perfect, hard packed and fast with very few loose sections.

The scenery was spectacular and we both had ear to ear grins all day.

About half the distance from Coyhaique pavement started and it was equally fantastic.

We are contemplating a rest day in Coyhaique so I can do an oil change on Skelly.
