20-Jun-2012 -- Un día feriado en mitad de semana no da muchas opciones. Cazar una confluencia cercana, es una buena salida. Salimos a las 10 de la mañana desde San Martín (Mza). La idea era hacer la confluencia y comer un asado a la sombra del árbol más cercano. A las 12:30 ya habíamos hecho 206 km y con solo caminar 100 mts, teníamos todos los ceros en la pantalla.

El viento era demasiado fuerte como para prender un fuego, así que solo comimos algo de fiambre.

En el camino, un lugareño nos paró para pedirnos agua y en charla nos contó del "Monigote", una formación rocosa llamativa a pocos kilómetros y allá fuimos. Nos arrimamos lo más que pudimos en la camioneta pero no quisimos caminar. Sacamos unas fotos y de vuelta a casa. Lindo paseo, recomendable.

20-Jun-2012 - A holiday in the middle of week does not give many options. Hunt near a Confluence is a good start. We left at 10 a.m. from San Martín (Mendoza). The idea was to make the confluence and eat a roast in the shadow of the nearest tree. At 12:30 we had already made 206 km and with only a walk of 100 m, had all the zeros on the display.

The wind was too strong for starting a fire, so we only ate some cold meat.

On the way, a villager stopped us to ask for water and in conversation told us about the "gingerbread", a striking rock formation a few kilometers away and off we went. We got close as far as we could in the truck, but did not want to walk. We took some pictures and drove back home. Nice ride, recommended.
