New Years day woke up with a decent hangover, Chilean wine is good but too much will do you in.
after saying goodbye to my lovely hosts, headed on south towards Coyhaique, Cochrane and the border crossing of Chile Chico.
The countryside quite spectacular and a lot of smooth blacktop.

The road turned to rough gravel again and I pull over for the day at the Alpaca campground. It was very windy there.

The next day I push on south, have a nice breakfast at this very pretty B&B.

Very pretty time of year,

the scenery truly breathtaking

I get down to Cochrane have a mediocre meal in a touristy restaurant, and realize I missed the turn off for Chile Chico.

Nice older Landcruiser spotted in Cochrane

On the way out of Cochrane had the front tire go flat. I managed to find some shade to fix it. It was an ordeal the bike fell over....
Later I found a lovely campsite along this magnificent river to relax and unwind after my ordeal. Just up stream from some ultra fancy fly fishing lodge.
Took a video of that campsite

Some more scenery of that area.

Next it was on to Chile Chico and my first of many crossings into Argentina.
