Sand dunes encroach on the Pan American Highway, on Peru's coast blown from a secluded beach by strong coastal winds. The paved but isolated section of the road hugs the coastline 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.
