Canon del Pato in Peru is a world famous beautiful rock canyon that lies between the Cordillera Negra and the Cordillera Blanca (the Black and White mountain ranges) near Caraz. The road that runs thru this canyon is an icon in the motorcycle adventure world. I spent the better part of a day riding thru the canyon taking pictures.
This was an exciting trip for a number of reasons. It was over 30,000 miles thru Latin America and the Andes mountains, and I didn't speak much Spanish. There was also the small detail of the Darien Gap. And, then there was "Death Road" in Bolivia - supposedly the most dangerous road in the world.
Anyway, I blogged about the entire journey right here.
