Quelap

It sits on a mountain at 10,000 feet and dates back to the 6th century which makes it almost a 1000 years older than Machu Piccu, yet its history is largely unknown. Riding here was a half the fun.

Taking in the view of the historic centro (and studying!) from atop the Hostal Villa Colonial in my favorite city in Mexico. Zacatecas, Mexico

Iguacu!

With a flow rate that can reach 450,000 cubic ft per second there’s some serious water passing over these magnificent falls. Foz do Iguacu, Parana, Brazil

Bienvenido a Colombia!

After one continuous party starting in Panama City, I’m finally on the road again.

San Vicente

This little guy seeks a reprieve from the sun in the small mining town where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were allegedly gunned down. I have enormous respect for the people who live atop this 15,000 ft peak. San Vicente, Bolivia

The lost city

It takes some effort to get here today so it’s not surprising the Spanish never found this Incan city. I try to imagine what the journey must have been like for the handful of people who stumbled across this magnificent place. Machu Picchu, Peru

Todo sur

After thousands of miles and a year of travel I’ve reached the southern tip of South America and the end of ruta 3. Tierra del Fuego, Argentina

Little bridges and big gorges

Making my way to the Peruvian coast south of Cajamarca and the only time I would leave the Andes Mountains while in Peru. Small bridges such as these connect 1000 foot gorges along the route and are typical of the epic scenery of the Peruvian Andes. Near Cajamarca, Peru
