As we drove away from Argentina, we saw the sun, for a brief moment, for the first, and what would be the last time in days, peaking over the horizon and we continued to Chile heading in the direction of the Mamuil Malal pass, situated at 1,210 meters, which we knew should be open year round, but were aware that in some cases of snow accumulation, could be closed. Since it had been raining for nearly ...
