Tierra del Fuego National Park, Argentina

Tierra del Fuego

After arriving at the airport in Ushuaia on the morning of November 14th, we boarded a bus for a half day visit to Tierra del Fuego National Park. The park sets right on the Beagle Channel and borders Chile. The park has a variety of glacial landforms, temperate rainforest with some interesting lichens and waterways. We made a number of stops. Many of the people in the group were interested in looking at birds. This became something of a pattern for much of the rest of the trip. So while many of them were looking at or looking for birds, or looking at other living things, I was off looking at rocks and landforms. I did take some pictures of living things, especially animals, but most of my pictures are of things geologic.
