Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego Argentina!

Today we hiked all over Tierra del Fuego National Park. This park shares it’s border with Chile and contains the southern tip of the Andes. It is almost 70,000 hectares. The park is Sub-Antarctic forest filled with ancient peat bogs, lenga and evergreen Coihue de Magallanes forests. It is a visually distinctive park and forest. Check out some photos of this stunning southern end of Patagonia, el fin del mundo.

  1. As soon as I seen your post I immediately clicked on it because I was excited to see where you were taking all of us to next. Beautiful photos, that woodpecker really is big. Loved the post!

  2. This is so wonderful… thank you for taking the time each day to share with us! I love the 5th photo down. Everything looks so beautiful and so interesting! What is the temperature?

    1. I was going to take photos of the trail signs as they were hilarious! Most could be spun 360 degrees! The map was indecipherable. Even the Argentinians were getting lost. Thank God for Jim’s internal GPS brain or we would still be out there. I argued we were going the wrong way out. I was wrong of course! πŸ™‚

  3. Great photos (woodpecker!). By any chance have you read Bruce Chatwin’s IN PATAGONIA? Great travel writing about this part of the world from an erudite eccentric Brit. Where I first learned about mate tea. Ken

      1. I had the chance to speak with him after a reading on his book tour for SONGLINES. From his pictures I’d always assumed he was a small man, but he turned out to be well over 6 ft, rangy. A bit stiff, but making an effort. Ken

  4. This >> (all the natural beauties we are gifted with, which you have presented in the last few days) ‘is’ the very reason why we ‘must’ protect the wealth of nature put in our trust by the Almighty! πŸ™‚ Fae.
