Over the bridges and through the tunnels to Huaraz we go...
Plans changed at the last minute and I stayed in Trujillo and
President Turk and the assistants went to Huaraz.
Because I wasn't going they thought they would try the short cut.
This road is supposed to save about 2 to 3 hours.
Little did they know that even by saving 2 hours
they were all left with sore rib cages and bruised kidneys
from the rough road.
You can see why this road is not used very much.
There are rock slides, narrow roads with steep cliffs and
a lot of pot holes and no pavement the whole way.
I can't tell you how happy I was not to be in this car on this road.
There were over 15 narrow bridges and almost 50 tunnels
Really, you can count them below.
I had to put them into a collage or you would be scrolling down for an hour.
Thanks for the photos Elder Nichols and Elder Chacaltana.
They now call this the Devil's Short Cut.
