High Plains Drifter

We had been riding at around 150km/hr for 2 hours over a high pass over the Andes between Argentina and Chile,racing across the salt flats.  It had been hundreds of kilometers since we had seen a town, a tree, or a structure.  We stopped for a break, at an altitude over 13,000 feet.  We were in the middle of nowhere.  And along comes this guy, on an old bicycle .  No idea where this guy came from, or where he was going.

Just out cruising

Note the modern water bottle and light weight bike.  Legendary!
