Island Girl Reaches Northern Chile on Monday

She flew another 263 km (163 miles) up the Pacific coastline, passing the city of Iquique and then some.

Looks like she roosted right above the beach although the Google Earth photos are masked by cloud cover. Her elevation was only 333' above sea level so she slept by the ocean last night. The roost was located at the bottom of an abrupt, steep 3,000' mountain.

She is moving past the incredibly deep gorges or quebradas of northern Chile, one of the most spectacular parts of the Pan Am Highway.

She was getting close to the Peruvian border only 74 km (46 miles) to the north at Arica.
