Biking, Inca-Style

Incas settled this area of Chile and the evidence is in abundance. We explored a well-preserved settlement during a stop on our afternoon bike ride. It's hard to describe the enormity of the landscape--seemingly never-ending vistas in every direction. For a desert, the Atacama has a wide variety of terrain: We even rode through several wet crossings. Hmmm... Could there be a Tour de France in our future? -- Diane
