Cycling Salta to Mendoza: Argentina Journey of a Lifetime (Travel Pictorial) (Paperback)
Between Argentina's spectacular Northwest and its middle Cuyo region stretch the arid foothills of the Andes known for great red wines. While the landscapes are a semi-desert scrubland, inhospitable, harsh and barren, they radiate in amazing colors, behold stunning panoramas, and bizarre roadside shrines pepper its remote nooks. Cycling Salta to Mendoza is an amazing road trip, a 1,400-kilometer adventure and romance, a journey through Argentina's outback. Discover the freedom of the open roads in the north of the country. Marvel at the beauty of the mountains and the desert, picturesque settlements, and pilgrimage destinations. Above all, learn what's it like to travel here by bicycle. Photographed and written by an author of many bicycle touring adventures, the photographic coverage of the journey is organized by the individual stages. With over 170 photographs, informative and entertaining captions, details of stages and distances, a list of accommodations, and the journey-related GPX tracks you can download, the book promises to entice any intrepid or armchair traveler.
