Road from Riobamba to Macas
This new road through the Sangay National Park is a spectacular drive across the Andes. Although controversial when it was built a few years ago, the dramatic road does travel over and around some amazing scenery.
All that we could find on it through Google searches was info about the deadly bus crash 2 years ago, killing the whole bus load, and info on the controversy surrounding its construction through the park. Armed with that, we figured, "how can this be bad??"!!! Turned out to be dramatic indeed, even though we hit it on a cloudy day. Highly recommend this route to the jungle.

We're now getting ready for a trip to the U.S., where we'll spend the month of September visiting family and friends, before returning to 'Bravo' at the end of the month, to begin our travels to Peru, Bolivia, and Patagonia.......
