30-Jan-2004 -- La confluencia está a 1 Km de la Ruta 40, que recorre la Argentina de Sur a Norte cercana a la cordillera de los Andes. El paisaje es el mismo durante cientos de kilometros, la tipica estepa patagonica que se ve en las fotos.

Estabamos haciendo un viaje de 7.000 con toda la familia en la motorhome que se ve en la foto. Dado que no hay alambrados ni se ven construcciones, directamente caminamos hasta la confluencia y apilamos unas piedras para marcar el lugar.

En las fotos tambien aparece mi hijo Alejandro, de 13 años. El resto no quiso hacer la caminata. Adjunto una foto de la Ruta 40, que sigue igual por centenares de Kilometros.

The confluence is at 1km from Route 40 which corsses Argentina from South to North next to the Andes. Scenery is the same for hundreds of kilometers, tipical 'patagonia' as seen in th ephotos.

We where doing a 7,000 km trip with the whole family on a motorhome. Since there are no fences or constructions nearby we just walked a straigth line to the confluence and piled some rocks to mark the place.

My son Alejandro (13) came along with me, the rest of the family choose not to come. The image of Route 40 can be the same at any point for hundreds of kilometers.
