    Hermosa Valley Beavers
    Jan 26, 2010

    Beautiful Valley. Beavers are concidered a pest in the south. But this family is happy enough to live in a reserve where people can come and view them in their natural habitat. They are such dedicated little workers. But the damage that they cause by their nibbling down trees and flooding forrest is considerable.

    Laguna Capri Trail
    Jan 18, 2010

    First part of the Fitz Roy Trail, with a 350 meter elevation.
    Rain in my eyes and strong winds from the front. Pure torture! I am going to die!
    So took a rest after the first 100 meter climb and decided I am going to die anyway, so I will die trying! .... But as you can see I made it back and can now tell the tale of survival!

    Ushuaia Prison Museum
    Jan 26, 2010

    The Ushuaia prison was closed during 1947 and changed into a museum with exhibitions about prison life, Antarctic discovery (saw a model of the Fram ship), maritime museum, history of Ushuaia and an art gallery for local artists. The prison museum was fascinating! One of the only prisons in the world where they didn’t go after escaped prisoners. The ones that survived returned voluntarily, no where else to go in the harsh and isolated environment.

    Viedma Glacier
    Jan 20, 2010

    A glacier hike on the Viedma Glacier.
    The weather was "iffy" to start with. Windy but not that windy ... Rainy but not that rainy. If the weather stays like this we can make the hike, if the weather changes we can't make the hike.
    The skipper of the boat decided we can go to the glacier.
    The main guide decided we can leave the boat and head for the glacier even with the rain.
    The rain started to pore down heavily. The wind picked up speed. We still had the ok of the main guide.
    We were half way with the climb to the glacier, when the wind started to pick up more speed.
    Ten meters from the top of the climb we got the sign to immediately return to the boat. Rain was now poring down heavily driven by a 60 kilometre plus wind! It was scary! So near and yet so far!!
