10-Feb-2004 -- Para llegar a esta confluencia tuvimos que desviar 50 kilometros de la ruta planeada durante las vacaciones. Cuando llegamos descubrimos que lamentablemente la ruta pasaba a 10 kilometros de la confluencia, y en campo espinoso es demasiado distancia para caminar. Cuando estabamos por abandonar con mucha rabia, descubrimos una huella que iba para esa dirección, y milagrosamente nos acercó hasta 800 metros.El campo es muy seco y con arbustos espinosos, y se utiliza para criar vacas, una cada 300 o 400 hectareas.Me acompaña mi hijo Alejandro, de 13 años. El resto de la familia no quiso hacer la caminata, nos esperó en el camino salvador, que se muestra en la ultima foto.

To reach this confluence we had to take a 50km detour during a planned vacation. As we got closer we realized that there was still another 10km from the road and on thorny fields, too much for a walk.
As we where about to give up, we found some tracks in the desired direction and, miraculously brought us at 800 meters.

These are very dry fields with thorny bushes, it is used to raise cattle, about one cow per 300 hectares.
My son Alejandro (13) was with me in the journey. The rest of the family did not do the walk and waited for us on the saving tracks shown in the last image.
