Chile…La Serena almost to Ovalle and back the hard way
So we went almost all the way back to Ovalle so we could check out the high desert on the road the guide book suggested for the adventurous, certainly a road only suitable for good drivers. We left one fertile river valley drove 42 odd kilometers and some three hours later we were in another fertile river valley. I wish I could tell you the elevation changes.
Looking back into the Elqui valley as we started across the mountains.
If you look really closely way in the distance you can see a red dirt road that’s where came from….pretty slick….
The Hertado river valley, really, really beautiful.
The short cut back towards La Serena, a lot flatter than the first desert crossing of the day but just as interesting.
