Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Twisting Roads

The High Puna of Argentina leads up into the Andes with roads that twist and turn forever upwards, and later forever downwards.

Twisting Road in the High Puna of ArgentinaThe altitude here is 4,170 m (13,681 ft). We are in the Altos del Morado (Heights of Purple) on Ruta 52 to Jujuy (pronounced HooHooey).NW Argentina Road Sign near Cachi showing the altitudeThat is a full-size bus on one of these narrow twisting roads. It can get really cold up at this altitude so the bus stops had wood stoves in them so people could keep warm while waiting.

NW Argentina on the road to Purmamarca…turning into a rain that blocked our view, and the bus driver’s too. We were all hoping that he knew these roads really well.08ArgRoadHighPuna_6880w One last road shot!
