Travel day to Ushuaia

Day 9: The port at Ushuaia
Day 9: The port at Ushuaia
Of course, the next morning was bright and clear as we waited for the bus to return to El Calafate for a flight to Ushuaia, our next stop. At least we had a chance to see the mountains in all their glory, and contemplate an extended stay in Chalten when we retire. It was a short, hour-long flight from El Calafate to Ushuaia. The views from the plane as we approached the city were spectacular -- jagged mountains rising up dramatically from large expanses of water. The airport is located literally on the edge of the Beagle Channel and it looked like we were going to make a water landing. ''Tierra del Fuego may be described as a mountainous land, partly submerged in the sea, so that deep inlets and bays occupy the place where the valleys should exist.'' -- Charles Darwin (see Day 10 photos)
