The Grand Andes continued

seen enough andes photos yet? not me, but enough commentary, we'll press on.

We stopped at this old hot springs resort, now out of business after a huge slide that took out most of the lodge and made the site unsafe... you can see the old church that the slide missed in the distance... right beside the railroad track that used to go between Argentina and Chile.... it was a very narrow gauge railroad...too bad the advent of the automobile made it defunct.

way out in the country, folks still sometimes make their roofs out of straw.... this fancy example on a roadside restaurant/store was probably more for tourists....

and here is how it looks inside the store.....

this valley seems to go from a quarter mile wide to 10 miles and just keeps on going up, as jamye so effectively displays here.
