We´ve chosen one or two from each place/excursion we´ve been to. As of right now, you will only see 17 of the 1350 we have...so you´re welcome. Under each picture, there will be a brief explanation of what the hell is going on.
|Ushuaia - Sea kayaking in the Beagle Channel. We fought choppy waves, winds, cold water, and came out with salt-crusted faces. Great day.|
|Ushuaia - Isla Martillo. On an extremely cold day (remember we were only a couple hundred kilometers from Antarctica), we took a boat out to a Magellanic penguin colony. They were so curious, they´d walk right up to you.|
|More penguins. These were nests, and so most of them were guarded by at least one of the parents.|
|The front of the glacier - where we were able to see a huge piece of ice (like the size of a bus) calve and fall into the lake. The sound was like huge rolling thunder or an explosion within the ice.|
|Entering El Chalten. The Fitz Roy mountain range greeted us upon our arrival to the town. A very scenic end to an otherwise mundane bus ride.|
|Ruta 40 - the famous highway, much of it still unpaved, on our way to Perito Moreno (the city, not the glacier). Jesse took this picture while our bus was stopped at a rest stop somewhere out side of Bajo Caracloes (basically the middle of nowhere).|
|El Calafate berries. The legend is, once you eat one of these berries, you are destined to return to Patagonia one day.|
So that´s it for now! Hopefully we will be able to do this once or twice more before we return home...in exactly ONE MONTH!
