5th: The Austral Factor

From Cerro Castillo to Coyhaique, in Chile.7B

It is difficult to pick out a single section of the Carretera Austral, as it was all spectacular. That said, when the ripio (mud, sand, dirt, death) gave way to tarmac in Cerro Castillo it was tough to know whether to look at the road, which had more curves than a pair of J Lo’s hot pants, or the epic tree covered mountains, bathed in autumnal ochres and reds.
