The Estrada Real

Following the Estrada Real (Royal Road), a road that connects the resource rich colonial cities of Minas Gerais in Brazil. The skies opened up soon after I took this pic and I was wrestling the SE through the orangish clay mud which made for a long riding day.

A stormy Torres del Paine

A fierce storm brewing behind the massif that resulted in yours truly getting pummeled by ice from all directions. The Torres is one of my favorite national parks in Latin America. Hiking the “W” Trail is worth the extra time.

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

Banos

Volcan Tungurahua near Banos, Ecuador

El Maestro

Thousands of miles of punishing Andean off-road riding through Peru and Bolivia have left the SE’s forks in a state of severe disrepair. I’m very fortunate to meet this gentleman and proprietor of Ajar Suspension in Mendoza. A true artisan, thank you, Juan!

The world’s largest salar

Almost a year later and I’m back on the Salar de Uyuni and it’s not under water! Yes!! Salar de Uyuni, Potosi, Bolivia

Khardung La

Khardung La lays claim to being home to the “Highest Road in the World” and is the gateway to the Nubra valley. This was an exceptional riding day, one I won’t soon forget. Khardung La, Jammu and Kashmir, India

El Amatillo

The infamous El Amatillo border crossing at the frontera of El Salvador and Honduras. I actually had a pretty good experience here so I can’t complain.
