Cordillera Quimsa Cruz, Bolivia

Photograph by Sergio Ballivian

Motorcyclists travel unpaved roads through the rugged landscape of the Cordillera Quimsa Cruz in Bolivia. Though the area looks desolate, it was once well traveled, especially by those who mined the metal resources here. The mines are now mostly defunct, but the roads remain, making the region accessible for modern-day explorers.
