Through the Peruvian Atacama

On Monday, 27 April, Island Girl continued on course up the Peruvian coast as expected. She flew another 266 km (165 miles) NW of Lima and eventually reached another dry mountain ridge to sleep for the night. She roosted up in the hills, apparently to avoid disturbance, at 543 meters (1,781'), as in WAY out there in the middle of nowhere.

The site was located NE of the town of Huarmey and approximately midway between Huacho and Chimbote.
