After having completed the first stage without problems

The great journey of Route 40 in Argentina from north to south: the first stage, from La Quiaca to San Antonio de los Cobres.

and the second contemplating the wonders of the puna landscape

The great journey of Route 40 in Argentina from north to south: the second stage, reaching Abra del Acay.

he would encounter the first (mechanical) difficulties in the course of the third stage.

Roll and roll. It goes up and down the hill. With all senses alert.

A distraction, speeding means losing control of the bike and ruining the trip. And perhaps with more serious consequences.

10.-La Ruta-40-9.png

And in the middle of this spectacular landscape, a true phenomenon: the beauty of a rainbow in the middle of the Puna.

10.-La Ruta-40-10.png

And suddenly again in the middle of the aridity of the terrain, characteristic of the Puna, the water in our journey.

Water that steadily descends from the mountains and seeps through the terrain on each decline it encounters.

10.-La Ruta-40-15.png

And suddenly the inevitable. I let myself be carried away by the enthusiasm and observe that endless landscape, I got distracted, I slipped and I went with the motorcycle to the ground.

Logro repararla y sigo

10.-La Ruta-40-12.png

Finally I get to Abra del Acay.

The highest place on Route 40 at more than 4800 meters above sea level.

The old, long-suffering and beloved motorcycle, faithful companion of so many adventures, resists.

In southern Argentina, the country that includes the climates of the six continents, there is a planet: Patagonia

Lakes as big as seas, unique glaciers in the world, mountains covered with forests and perennial snow, huge windy and semi-desert expanses, the southernmost city in the world and waters of oceans that face eternally, meet, fight and mix: here it is this huge triangle of land where America ends.

Valdés Peninsula, a naturalistic microcosm of incalculable ecological value.

02.-Whales in Patagonia.jpg

On these coasts, a naturalistic microcosm of incalculable ecological value, the Valdés peninsula, projects its beaches towards the open sea, where, imaginary border between the Antarctic waters and the South Atlantic, the right whale arrives at the beginning of the southern winter (May ) and reaches the Gulf of San José and, in part, the New Gulf to perpetuate its species in an almost uncontaminated natural area and where the observer can interpret, enjoy or study these giant mammals, but always learns to respect them if not to love them.

Whales in Patagonia, a whole show of nature.

02.-Whales in Patagonia-0.jpg

In the middle of the year a new sound is heard in the southern Patagonian sea. The right whale returns punctually to Peninsula Valdés, in Argentine Patagonia.
Whales arrive.

As every year about 600 specimens of each species arrive in the calm waters of the Golfos Nuevo and San José.

Like sea lions and elephant seals, whales are mammals that have adapted to marine life.

02.-Whales in Patagonia-11.jpg

But they have gone much further in their evolution.

Their limbs do not retain anything that can remind them of their previous terrestrial life and their enormous weight, on the other hand, prevents them from going ashore.

02.-Whales in Patagonia-5.jpg

Nor do they need it, because whales, unlike sea lions and elephant seals, reproduce in the water.

Despite the richness of the murky waters of the Valdés peninsula, this is not a feeding area for cetaceans.

In fact, during their stay in Argentine southern waters, they must live off the fat reserves accumulated during their long stay in the ocean.

02.-Whales in Patagonia-14.jpg

Despite this, the waters of the Valdés Peninsula are still the chosen place to carry out two fundamental missions: mating and bringing their young to the world.

The southern right whale in danger.

02.-Whales in Patagonia-10.jpg

However, these images were about to disappear due to indiscriminate hunting by whalers.

And the southern right whale stopped coming to these waters. Only years after the whales were protected did they return to this sanctuary.

50 years after the ban, the coasts of the South Atlantic began to show the presence of the southern right whale again.

A global attraction.

In Patagonia, in the province of Chubut, on the Valdès peninsula, Puerto Piramides, there is the possibility, between the months of May and December, of detecting the southern right whale and getting excited when the encounter is already anticipated from a distance.

Seeing a whale with its flounder is an unusual and unforgettable sight.

They represent the great attraction of the Valdès peninsula, where they reach the coast showing themselves in evolutions and jumps that would be said to be worthy of a classical ballet despite the size and enormous weight of the "dancers".
