The tour to and from Cafayate took 12 hours. There was a good mix of people in the van, two Brits, two Americans, the rest from Argentina and me. We stopped to take photos of geological sites along the way. The mountains are red clay, sentimentary rock.
Hmmmmm, about twenty of my photos did not transfer to my flashdrive and I deleted the camera....guess they are gone. Oh, well, you get the idea of the day from photos. The colours were really vivid as the sun began to set....ooops, those are the missing pictures....
