The rough ride continues but the views are astounding. So much nicer than the Pan Americana maybe not as fast but much more enjoyable.

Lots of gum and pine trees planted.
There are two passes back to the West. Because the road is so slow we will not be able to traverse both passes so at the last minute we decide that maybe as the southern pass has a big tunnel the road may be sealed.

 Yes a sealed road.
What a great climb we turned onto the old road used before tunnel was built and drove to where we could camp with a view of a lovely colored glacial lake. A little high for us at 4700m altitude but we thought we’d give it a go.

A shame such a lovely place and yet they still dump rubbish!
