Where is 3:59? I've had that as my screen background for a long, long time. But never knew where it was. I stare at that road, and just ache to find out what's around the corner. Great shot!!

leaving Merida behind in the valley we head of into the Andes



great mountain roads with minimal traffic and amazing views, but it was strange to feel very cold for the first time in months








this was in avery small town in the middle of nowhere...



over time the road climbs and the sky cleared, the air got thinner, and the cold...well it got colder










most of the roads we were riding were like this heading up and down, we stuck to paved roads due to heavy rain over the last few days, and paved roads means about 80% paved in these areas




and in GPS world it looked like this...



finally reaching the summit at around 12,000 feet just as the sun was dropping below the peaks of the mountain behind us, i have kind of lost track how many times i have crossed the Andes over the last two years, i think its in double figures for sure and each crossing is different and an amazing sight

heading thru small rose farms that lined the hillsides and back down into the valley where political slogans lined walls





we ended up in a small town called la grita which on my map and GPS had two streets, a little bigger when we got there, four main squares running up a hill side, we ended up finding a secure hotel with parking for $6 a night



and then decided to stay a couple of days and relax and wander around and do some people watching











and of course there are dogs...

the town felt safe and secure with a large military presence who were very friendly and smiled and said hello on whole





if you have a sweet tooth do they have snacks for you for pennies



as always main squares here seem to have a church and palms trees





and now christmas was done they had it locked away, guess you will have to come here next year to find out who wears this as we missed it...
