RIDING CANYON DEL ATUEL. PART 1
A bit of backtracking for showing you some more photos from my first stretch of riding in Argentina this time.
Almost every day since I started my second circle around the world I am accompanied with one thought. What if I have finished traveling after the first circle.. I would not have seen more of this beauty, I would not have met more of these amazing people. What if…
I know I know… one cannot see everything and meet everyone, at some point I’ll have to stop. Yes, I know. But I will think about it later, and now.. I just want to keep going, to keep enjoying, to keep enriching myself with the road.
Anyway… another road on my way, from San Rafael to Malargue in Mendoza, through the famous Canyon del Atuel. Featuring Majestic mountains and rocky outcrops, the jewell of this area centers around water. Surrounded by the Canon del Atuel, the flowing waters of the Atuel River are not only visually pleasing, but offer a wide range of activities, white-water rafting, kayaking, swimming and fishing. But even all that fun is nothing compared to the scenery. This is one of the most beautiful places in Argentina. It is the kind of natural beauty that can calm the mind and ease the tired soul.
I totally enjoyed the road and the views around. I couldn’t help stopping every few meters or every few kilometers at best, that’s why the section of 40 km took me several hours. I hope that looking at these photos you will understand why.
I cannot post everything I wanted to show you of this road in one FB post so be prepared for several parts : )
