Me just really excited to be able to wear shorts!
Most of the expedition staff plus the cheff, hotel manager and doctor.
After that it was back on the boat to Ushuaia where we had a final send off and then headed for the hills once again. Because I had Nicole with me I really wanted to show her a place we went while we were stranded in Ushuaia a few months prior to try spot a beaver or two. This is where the idea to camp at the beaver dam above Lago Esmeralda came from. So off we went.
Way too cold for shorts but at the time it was a good idea.
Camp was sweet. No one around, just beavers! Also much to Nicole's disgust, we only had one (very light) sleeping bag and one very small sleeping mat. That was a cold night!
Beaver swimming... That's all they really did for us.
Ushuaia is Fin del mondo for sure with it's terrible internet, beautifully harsh landscapes, cold and unpredictable weather, and isolation. But it's worth the effort with a pretty reasonable taxi in any direction you can find some sweet spots to go on an adventure. Perhaps next time I'll actually be able to speak a little Español!
