Fin Del Mundo
While jogging, I noticed that this town is swarming with dogs and without leashes or fencing. Did I break a few records! Luckily I did not need to rely on my tetanus shots! The K9 problem is so bad that all household bins are actually metal baskets purched on a pole next to the letter box to stop the doggies from making a mess. Not a good look!
Before the snow storm, I visited the "Tierra Del Fuego National Park" and the "Martial Glacier", both breathtakingly beautiful and only 24km and 7km away. The national park actually borders Chile and even has beavers in it who, like rabbits in Australia, are actually pests and in uncontrollable numbers. The Martial Glacier is not as large as most and the face sits at around 1,000m altitude, however getting there is a killer since we hiked from the 385m car park to get there!
