Chile’s Carretera Austral – Part 3

After a few days we move further south toward Cochrane.  Our ride takes us along the southwest shore of the lake and then to the banks of the Rio Baker.

Markus and Karin left the camp at Rio Tranquilo today too and they catch up with us on the road as we stop to chat with our friends, Erica and Sam, of Song of the Road.  It’s amazing how the continent narrowing has made a sort of funnel of the roads and how it helps to reunite us with other travelers we haven’t seen for a while.

Then we carry on and stop to see the confluence of the Rios Baker and Nef.

In Cochrane we meet up with two more friends from the road, overlanders Michael and Simone, and share a lovely dinner with them and Markus and Karin.  The next day I head out to Caleta Tortel to see the lovely road and then the charming village made of small cabins and boardwalks along a coast fjord.

Brian and I ride north a bit and backtrack about 35 miles to get back to Lago General Carrera and ride the southern shore of the lake to the eastern border of Chile as we head toward Argentina.
