|Looking back at the mine.

|The Tablacacha river valley and the road to Pallasca... That I did not take.

|Never exactly meant for large traffic!
|If you ride through this hot spring? you have gone to far. The track is completely broken off up around the bend. You have to go back and cross the river.
|And if you find this miner shack? you have also gone the wrong way. Go back up to the main track and go down the river at the first trail of switchbacks.
|Cross the river here.
|I imagined I was off the back of a cross race... nahh just miners dragging poles with donkeys for shacks.
|The going was easy here.
|Soon to be washed away
|Cling to the drive side cliff as long as you can. Yep, you will carry your bike alot.
|cross back over the river here.
|If you find this encampment? you have gone the right way.
|After carrying my bike through the Grand Canyon three times. This felt like some amazing kinda reward!
|Drying out the tootsies after several river crossings. Man, what a great day!
|Reason 467 not to drive. Good luck buddy.
|Just a bit redundant
|Canyon del Pato
