    Day 104: Climbing slowely.

    April 22, 2016 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Today we set out maximum altitude to 3100 meters. This is to let our bodies adapt to the altitude and hopefully prevent altitude sickness. So we set out relaxed and made some progress early on. After noon a patagaonian like headwind apeared. This made progress slow and hard. But after some long breaks we made it to 3100 meters in only 44 km. So tomorow another 60 to our goal of 3800 metersRead more

    Day 103: Getting some altitude.

    April 21, 2016 in Argentina ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Today is the first day of our seccond crossing trough the Andes. First we tried to get ninos wheel fixed and some suplies to build our spare stove since our stove is acting up. So we left at 2 and raced to try to get as much altitude as posible. At 2300 meter we found a good enough place to camp. We are planning to get in 3 days to 3800 meters. Here we plan a restday before heading over the pass with several highpoint between 4300 and 4570. Hopefully this aproach will make it easier on our bodies.Read more

    Quebrada del Toro

    August 22, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Ci sono diversi itinerari possibili da Salta, che abbiamo scelto come base di partenza delle nostre esplorazioni per i prossimi tre giorni. Allora cominciamo inseguendo il "tren de las nubes", in verità una ferrovia fantasma il cui percorso dovrebbe snodarsi sui costoni delle montagne tra gallerie e viadotti fino alla Polverilla.
    Il paesaggio vira presto verso il secco, diradando i villaggi che si riducono a qualche casupola di mattoni mimetizzata nella terra grigia, mentre pochi alberi polverosi lasciano il posto ai famosi cactus candelabro, il grande classico di ogni film western.
    E poi, quasi timidamente, ecco il primo assaggio di cerros colorados in questa Quebrada del Toro.
