#1: East View

(visited by Ichi, Chino and Ninell)

19-Oct-2003 -- From a big wall map I realized the closest village was one called "La Colorada" (The Colored one) and that there was a road just crossing the 81 Longitude line, so we headed to that 81 W crossing. From the 81 W crossing, we followed a trail in the woods, and it tooks us to the top of a hill. After facing slipery and moddy terrain, and bushes filled with tiny ants but that bite just the opposite, we got to the top of the hill, where nothing to see due to the woods. We realized we were about 200 meters NE away.

We discovered an opening in the woods that lead us to cattle terrain, only grass and small hills. Off we went until we found the confluence. We were welcomed by about 50 cows and bulls..
