I stocked up on water at a police post and decided to have a go at the remaining 90k to El Calafate. That would mean a hundred miles for the day, but a day saved. I finally enjoyed a flattish road and a tailwind for 40k, which helped cover the distance. I crested a rise to see a huge valley in front of me, dropping away to the lake on which Calafate is sat. Sadly, I had also turned into ...
