Thursday, 07.01.2010 (II/II): yellow, brown, red, green…

7 Jan
The second part of the day is mainly marked by the views in the main valley of the parc: at every corner you could take a picture, some nice colours, grat contrast and all with wind from the coast that gently pushes you 400m up (for 35km). Again the guards said: no, no, it is flat…. Well thanks to the wind, it nearly was.

So after those beautiful and amazing views I came back on the Route 5 and took a little rest, before going up further, but steeper: again 400m, but in 8km and with wind from the front. 20km later I left the 5 to go in direction of Taltal and find a place to rest…with again 300m to climb.
One of the best day in Chile up to now! If only Fränzi would be here as well…

Cheers, Georges
