…the open road is a beckoning, a strangeness, a place where a man can lose himself. –William Least Heat Moon

Back to the mountains...leaving the crush of summer vacationers at the beach, capturing vistas along the way, attempting to skirt the big cities, realizing I left earrings at our last cabana and hoping someone finds them and  enjoys them, negotiating 21 hairpin turns up and down a mountain, navigating through Santiago to our night's lodging....

Chilean men on their way to a Sunday fiesta?

Sunset clouds over the Andes.

 Advancing towards the border with Argentina.

The road is closed for another 10 days.

Retreating towards Santiago.

Aconcagua on the left in Argentina.

3 of the 21 curves.  We do not know how many more there were.

Curve  7.
