He took a big run up then put his feet up on the crossbar hoping he'd got enough momentum to go through without peddling. It was very funny to watch and he just made it to the other side but the water had come so high he got soaked anyway!
That evening we went stargazing. Del had read an article which listed ...

... the Tatio geysers, which starts at 4am - that was NOT a fun morning! VALLE DE LA LUNA and DEATH VALLEY Unique desert landscapes of dunes, rocks, mountains, caves, salt formations, ravines - you name it. Incredible scenery.
