We were warned not be ride after sun down. Yet somehow, despite the curvy mountain roads, the lack of any sort of road markers (or building size), we somehow lose track of the day. The GPS is remarkable accurate in providing the sundown time. Literally, within minutes the country goes dark, like cave dark. Worse yet, the lack of solar heating has now caused a massive inversion of the air and the heavy fog rolls across our helmets.
My GPS has decided that it wants to send us 30KMs on a narrow, grassy trail. There is just no way that we are game for it tonight. With a few more recalculations, we find our accommodations for the evening. We are weary travelers and happy to be invited in for a Ecuadorian dinner and a pot belly stove which was on.
Remember, more gates to keep the flora out!

Naturally, this is the kind of place that you could spend lots of time just unwinding here. The rooms also have pot-belly stove heat, but be wary that is doesn't burn out in the wee hours of the morning. Also, when the bed has more blankets on it than an Alpaca has fur, it should warn you that the cold will move in quickly! My only regret is that we didn't even stay here 12 hours. What a magnificent gem!
