Next excursion went to Cafayate and Quilmes south of Salta, a two-day trip I did in a rental car. The big attraction is Quebrada de Cafayate along Rio de las Conchas. Here the mountains assumes many mighty formations, and the most thrilling ones have their own name.
Here is a view of the river valley. It was nice to stop the car every now and then and go down to the river. But the waters are shallow, so there was no swimming oppurtunity.
