Decidí ir a esta confluencia en un viaje a Santa Rosa, estaba de vacaciones en un campo a 50 Km. de allí y tenía pensado hacer esta y la S 37° W 63° que también está cerca. Por ahora hice esta. Como hace mucho que no llueve los campos y caminos están muy polvorientos, lo que sumado al calor del verano (hoy debe hacer unos 35°C) no es el mejor día para hacerla, pero ya empezado hay que llegar!!!.

El recorrido es por varios caminos de tierra, que entre entrada y salida dieron más de 50Km. y me aproxime unos 1600m y había que caminar. El calor y el sol eran muy fuertes, así que buscando encontré una entrada cerrada con candado, seguí por otra calle y otra tranquera con candado, que ya pensaba ir caminando, pero seguí un poco más y halle una casa con una entrada arbolada. Era la hora del mediodía y al llegar a la casa no se veía a nadie, ni el perro ladraba. Golpee un poco las manos para llamar la atención pero nadie salía, por lo que era evidente que estaban sesteando.

Como se veía una huella interna con rumbo hacia donde indicaba la flecha del GPS, fui hacia la confluencia casi en línea recta y llegué más bien con la chata arriba de la confluencia. Tome las fotos e inicio mi regreso cuando veo que se acerca otra camioneta. Era el encargado que venía a ver quien había entrado. Le expliqué de mi visita y me comenta que su hijo ya había estado allí con otro visitante, y que lo estaban esperando para comer un prometido cordero. Luego de esta amigable charla tomamos el rumbo hacia su casa y yo estaba de salida.

I decided to go to this confluence in a trip to Santa Rosa, while I was on vacations in a field at 50 km. from this one and also I had thought to do S 37° W 63° that it is also close. So far I did this. Because long ago it does not rain, fields and roads very dusty, and in addition the heat of the summer (today it must do 35°C) is not the best day to do it, but once the trip has already begun is necessary to arrive.

The route is by several dirt roads, that between entrance and exit I ride more of 50Km. and at approximates 1600m I was afraid that it was necessary to walk. The heat and the sun were very strong, so looking for entrance I found one closed with padlock, followed by another road and another padlocked gate. When I was practically convinced to walk, followed a little more and finds a house with an entrance plenty of trees. It was about noon and when arriving at the house nobody was around, nor the dog barked. Clap my hands a little to see if anybody were around, but nobody went out, reason why it was evident that they were taking a nap.

As there were an internal track with course towards the CP, where it indicated the arrow of the GPS, I continue towards the confluence almost in straight line and arrived rather with the truck on the confluence. I took the photos and begun my return when I saw another light truck approaches. He was the guy in charge who came to see who had entered. I explained to him of my visit and it told me that his son already had been there with another visitor, who was waiting for him to eat an engaged lamb. After this friendly chat we took it the course towards its house and I was on my way back.
