Autumn during the day, you can see the magnitude of nature and its accidents. Formations and wind work on the rocks and their colors are discovered. Winter on full moon night, clear and illuminated, incredible shadows crossing the route and reflection in the meandering Chubut River. Stop the car, take some time and walk a good time; then enjoy the typical sandwich of raw ham and good cheese, on homemade bread (bread smeared with homemade butter), from the bar of the A.C.A. service station.
