From Tafi del Valle to Salta (Guestpost by Ximena)

One way. One road to the most diversity of view from Argentina. Once away from San Miguel Tucumán, the capital of the province of Tucuman you take road 55 to Tafí Viejo. You may be surrounded by a dense green forest completely far away from crowd. You may be ecstatic with this green panorama till the next way around from the mountain that you find yourself in a desert. Few moments later, you realize that you’re not longer in road 55, you’re in national road 9. At first the sight, you won’t notice anything but then everything changes, from a desert to a valley of red mountains. It’s amazing the different color of this mountain range. You may stop in the “Garganta del Diablo” (Devils Throat) – the heart of the mountain. Just silence and fresh air, it’s really worth to see! Then, arriving to Salta, there is a change in the color of the mountain, they are more modest but not less stunning. Once in Salta, you may find be surrounded by vegetation again.
