    Vehicle makeover

    November 25, 2017 in Chile

    The previous day, while driving back from the Suri Plaza, we had lost the front grill of our vehicle due to the broken roads and the heavy shaking of the vehicle. The sounds made by our old vehicle and the soft landing on the sand road had meant that we completely missed when it happened. We first noticed the gaping hole in front, in the morning when we came out to drive away.
    Our 2nd stop of the day was at Las Cuevas. Here we saw an abandoned Nissan jeep with only 1 tyre out of the 4. All the internal parts seemed to have been taken away. This looked like it was left there after all the claims had been done. This vehicle gave us an idea and pretty soon, we had a nice new grill on our vehicle 😁😁😁

    Las Cuevas

    November 25, 2017 in Chile

    The Las Cuevas was a nice nature walk which passed through a boefdal. There was a hot spring on the way and a bridge over the marshland. There were some birds in the marshes when we passed by. It is an interpretative trail with boards describing the flora and fauna ans their relationship. It went in a loop across the road and then back.Read more

    The track continued on the other side of the road. We saw many viscachas there. There were boulders in that area and tens of viscachas soaking up the early morning sun. Some of them would run away while others would just freeze where they were till we got too close.

    Alero Las Cuevas and dust devils

    November 25, 2017 in Chile

    Along the trail there are overhanging rocks that have been used for shelter for 7000 to 9000 years before the current time. The traders from the highlands going to the seaside for trading might have stopped here on the way.
    The afternoon was quite hot and it was quite windy due to the high altitude. This was a perfect recipe for dust devils to form. We saw about 10 of them form amd move across the horizon quite some distance away in the mountains.Read more
