Just return from end of the world, Patagonia, the southernmost region of Argentina and Chile (although I've only been in the Argentinian part) and wanted to share some beautiful pics I took. These are just a little bit of the almost 500 hundreds I took!

Here we go:

Mascardi Lake, at Rio Negro


Corazon Island (Heart Island) in Mascardi Lake


Ever seen a black glacier? Well, here it is, or what is left of it. This is not dirt, everything is ice! The ice falls from the mountains and gets all dirty


Some kind of lizard


Espejo Lake (Mirror Lake) at Neuquen


Two sights of Mount Tronador (Mount Thunderer - 3500 mts), at the border of Argentina and Chile



Into the Andes...


A nice rock


The rainbow


A bridge over the Limay River


A nice view at 1300 mts high


Mountains at Bariloche City


A nice view of San Jorge Gulf


My prison, for a day and a half


Sunrise at Comodoro Rivadavia City




Now some pics of one of the most incredible things I've ever seen: The Perito Moreno Glacier

80 meters tall ice walls!!!





Solitaria Island (Lonely Island) in Argentino Lake, next to the town of Calafate


Another view of the lake and the town


Tierra del Fuego Island from the plane (two bad it was almost night)


Ushuaia City, the Southernmost City of the World


A rock full of cormorants, in the Beagle Channel


One of my favourites, boats in the Ushuaia Bay


An interesting sign, downtown Ushuaia


The Saint Christopher a shipwreck at the Ushuaia Bay


A fishing ship in the Beagle Channel


A rock full of Sea Lions


Les Eclaireurs lighthouse, somewhere in the Beagle Channel


Penguins at Hammer Island (two bad we arrive too late in the season, and there were only a few left)



A husky POW camp


Escondido Lake, Tierra del Fuego



Fagnano Lake, Tierra del Fuego



Pass of Garibaldi, through the Andes


Valley of Carbajal, Tierra del Fuego


Lapataia Bay, in the Beagle Channel, in the back Redonda Island (Round Island)



Beagle Channel


The southernmost Post Office of the World, at Lapataia Bay, really the end of the world. Only 1000 km from Antarctica.



That's it. Hope I didn't bore all of you who reached so far in this post.
I really recommend this trip, photos show soooo little...!

Really good photos - what a wonderful trip that must have been.

Love the one of the Sunset and also the penguins and glaciers.

Makes me want to head on down there.

Well done.

Thanks to all

Here are some more pics of the glacier


Here it can be seen the remains of the breakings. Massive blocks of ice break constantly and fall into the lake, with the sounds of thunders. Really impressive




The 6 km long front wall






An infinite mass of ice.


A chunk of ice with the size of a truck

Not at all! After all, a picture is worth 10,000 words -- and takes much less time to read.

True, but for those of us who may never get a chance to go, you've at least given us a better idea of what it's like.

You went to a lot of trouble to share these pictures with us.

Thank you so much!

WOW!

Thanks very much for the time you took to do this.
To me, the word Patagonia was equvalent to the word Mysterious.
You don't hear a lot about it. I certainly don't know a lot about it

Just amazing, and thanks again!

Very cool pics!

I really like that night-time picture of Tierra del Fuego!


Would you care to tell use more about what you were doing in that part of the world? (Just sightseeing?)

On holidays and visiting some friends. But I spent a lot of time just traveling in buses. The distances are huge, and I'm terrified of planes. :shk:
I only flew to get to Tierra del Fuego Island, and then back home.

Seems like all the travelling was well-worth it.
These pictures are really nice, thanks for clicking those, and sharing them ofcourse.

Thank you for taking the time to put those pictures up. I have 2 questions. 1) was the Beagle Channel named for HMS Beagle? 2) Did you hear if the glacier was shrinking at an accelerated pace?

Thanks

1) Yes, it was named after HMS Beagle.

2) No, the glacier is not shrinking, in fact it is one of the few, if not the only one, that still grows.
