Final leg – Trans Ecuador 5 – Cuenca to Vilcabamba

With its lower┬áaltitudes this may not win the award for being the most dramatic section of the┬áTEMBR┬ábut it is still a fun ride and a good way to get down to Peru… I made the mistake of deviating from the main route on the┬ápenultimate day onto a rather gnarly horse track…

Getting to Quito – TEMBR 2

After crossing several fields, running low on water, negotiating a massive wall and locked gate, a few days with an upset tummy (again) and passing through several tunnels on a old scenic railway I found myself at the Dammer farm for some much needed rest. Another spectacular section on the Dammer / Gilbert route.
