Leaving the Desert Yet Again...Last Day in Peru

Island Girl is making good time this spring. She is two days faster than her 2014 schedule and one day faster than her 2013 run.

She continued to follow the inland coastal foothills as usual in this area, thereby avoiding the heat of the Sechura Desert near the coast. She knows this area very well by now, having passed through here many times before.

She flew 262 km (163 miles), passing Piura and roosted "on a hillside overlooking the Chira River Valley".

She was within view of the Represa de Poechos, a large impoundment to her west and no doubt a potential source of food.

The city of Las Lomas was to her east.

She was only 16 km (10 miles) from the Ecuadoran border.
