P.N. Leoncito to San Jose de Jachal - March 5

We woke early to find the tents and gear covered in dew so we hung lines to dry things out a bit before riding at 9:30am.
It was a long day of dirt and ripio made worthwhile by the incredible scenery.
We had an early lunch and fuel stop in Barreal and then rode to Iglesias to reach pavement for the run into San Jose de Jachal on a narrow road ascending a steep river gorge.  Some of the turns were so tight, and with two way traffic it felt like we were brushing the canyon walls with our elbows.
We arrived in San Jose de Jachal before 8pm and had dinner Argentine style at 10:30pm outside in the main Plaza,
