Climbing Glaciar Martial Tierra del Fuego Patagonia!

Today was an alpine day as we climbed past the timberline to the Martial Glacier. First we had to past through The Haunted Twisted Lenga Forest. Take a peek:

Next we had to cross some flimsy plank bridges…….

Then we had the view to the Beagle Channel far below.

And we joined the ant people climbing to the Glacier. Look for the tiny ant people climbing, it will give you perception of the mountains and their immensity.

  2. I love the name “Tierra Del Fuego” it just conjures up end of world images then you put in those spooky trees they so perfectly fit the image I have of Patagonia. Those little ant people really give the photo a sense of perspective
