Day 4 and 5 - Parque Nacional Los Alerces to Cholia

Day 4 was a day off from biking since Ryan needed to figure out items with Customs about reordering a pannier for the rest of the tour, so he had to town to make some phone calls while I hung out at camp lakeside.

Day 5 we headed out of Lago Verde camp and went as far as the ripio allowed us, which was Cholila.  Through the park, the hills were much steeper climbs than we had experienced before.  I was in the smallest chainring of my granny gear and had to take some breaks and catch my breath.  After exiting the park, the gravel was much worse.  Many large rocks in the road and many areas of extremely soft gravel that our tires could not tread through easily.  We were moving at a snail´s pace at that point, and decided to camp in Cholila so we could tackle 20 more km of ripio the next day refreshed.  It´s amazing how slow we went and yet how quickly exhausted we became.

We camped in town at campsite that was literally the side yard of a house in town.  The family was really sweet, setting us table up for our camping dinner, and we had all the accomodations we needed for the the night.  Warm showers, laundry, and a horse roaming around the yard the entire evening.
