Pan-American Highway, National Geographic Book: Desert Coastal Highway

Sand from a secluded beach blown by strong coastal winds begins to reclaim the paved road along a isolated section of the Pan American highway in the Sechura Desert south of Casma, Peru. 

The Pan American highway connects a myriad of countries and cultural experiences along the 10,000-mile portion of road that stretches through Latin America.  Bustling sophisticated cities contrast desolate desert and rural countryside in Mexico, Peru and Chile.
