Mendoza to Santiago (Day 16) – Pulvadera
We left the houses at noon & crossed the plain, which is so extensive that to the North nothing can be seen over its level horizon. Our road lay along the side of the mountain torrent which we had crossed by the village of Luxan, it was here a furious & quite impassable stream, & similarly to the case of V. Vicencio appeared larger than in the plain. We followed the valley which trends very Southerly, & slept at a place called the Pulvadera.
