A few more pictures and a post from Marcos, who was scouting our trial head yesterday.
Early in the morning, the sun will light up the “San Lorenzo Castle the Real of Chagres river”. That light is the same that pirates and explorers saw in 1595.
Here is where the ride start, ocean to ocean, trails to trails, The Gold Route…
Famous pirates and corsairs have started their crossing here. Francis Drake was able to conquer it in 1596; Henry Morgan attacked it with violence between 1668 and 1671 and started his trip to destroy Panama from here
This is a great place to visit to enjoy of the sea-landscape and the Chagres River – the only river in the world that has seen more gold than all the other rivers of the world put together.
