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.
