Tierra del Fuego National Park - Beauty in Southernmost South America

After returning from the Antarctic trip, we spent the first day visiting Tierra del Fuego, before flying to Buenos Aires.  It was beautiful - and a wonderful contrast to the Antarctic ice.

Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost national park in the world, has dramatic scenery, with waterfalls, forests, mountains and glaciers. Its 630 km2 include parts of the Fagnano and Roca lakes. The Senda Costera (Coastal Path), connecting Ensenada Bay to Lapataia Bay on Lago Roca, is a popular hiking trail. Forests of Antarctic beech, lenga beech and coihue in the lower elevations of the park are home to many animal species. There are 20 species of terrestrial mammals, including the guanaco, Andean Fox, North American Beaver, European Rabbit and muskrat. Among the 90 species of birds are the Kelp Goose, Torrent Duck, Austral Parakeet, Andean Condor, Blackish Oystercatcher, and Magellanic Oystercatcher.
