Quick hello from Tierra del Fuego, “Land of Fire” (Day 483)

Hey all.  As I type this I am at the very bottom of Argentina, in a place called The Land of Fire.  As it is the middle of summer down here, it stays light outside until almost 11pm.  But the weather is not very summer-like:  the temps hover just above zero, and it snowed a couple days ago at an altitude of about 300 metres.  Imagine being back home and getting snow in early July.

Lately I have been doing a bunch of day hikes in the Tierra del Fuego National Park and surrounding area.  I feel like I have been bombarding you with trekking pics and stories, so I will let you off the hook this time, and just say the hiking has been excellent.  Especially with a new dusting of snow on all the mountains making the views very aesthetic.

In a few hours I will board a ship that will take me to the driest, windiest, coldest place on Earth:
