Given the fact that we’d all been up until he early hours of the morning it amazed me that we were all up and eating an amazing omelet, cooked for us all by Zey by about 0900 hours in the morning.
Wonders of wonders there was blue sky outside in what promised to be a beautiful day.
After breakfast we all went our separate ways with different points of interest to see. Lil and I decided on the Tierra del Fuego National Park. We were picked up from our hostel which was kind of convenient with a change of busses at the bus station.
The driver only spoke Spanish however one of the other guys, Jon lucky could understand so started playing translator for us all. Kind of handy really for those minor little details like pickup points and times.
It only took about 20 minutes or so to get out to the National Park and we all clambered put of the bus most people heading off in different directions. We teamed up with Jon, Matt and Tom by the simple fact that we were all heading off on the same trail first anyway.
Jon continued to act as interpreter translating he signs for us. There are heaps of trails in the park from easy up to hard. We chose the easy ones. We spent till about 1430 hours with the boys exploring the park encountering lakes, wildlife, beaver colonies, bogs and winding our way through shaded forest paths.
Jon & Matt had a plane to catch that evening so they headed back to town early and Tom decided to go back to town at that point as well. Lil and I decided there was one more trail we wanted to walk before heading back so we waved goodbye to the boys and wandered off to find the trail head.
Thankfully we found it without a hassle and wound our way through the trees on our way around the lake towards the end of the trail which was the boarder between Argentina and Chile (or at least of of them!)
The trail was an easy one with only a little bit of scrambling over some rocks and picking purr way across wooden logs conveniently positioned over small streams. All the way drinking in the scenery around us. This is a truly beautiful part of the world.
It took about 1.5 hours to find our way to the metal marker that marked the boundary between Argentina and Chile. We sat for a bit after the almost obligatory photos of course!
Finally we headed back to catch the final bus out of the park for the evening. All up it was another relaxed but great day marking the end of our time at the end of the world.
