To the end of the world and back! Ushuaia is the most southern city in the world and we wanted to go see what it was all about. We took a ferry to the island tierra del fuego (land of the fire) and were prepared for the cold. Ushuaia is a beautiful city with huge mountains everywhere. The first day we walked around the city for a little while then headed off to the national park. It was Erics birthday so we explored the park then had a birthday dinner of pasta, cake, and wine. We went to bed early so we could wake up early for a hike.
The hike was another long one with lots of elevation, just our kind of hike. We hiked for about three hours then made it to the top of a mountain with breath taking views of everything. Views of mountains that go on forever, the ocean where the pacific and the atalantic meet each other, and also of the city of Ushuaia. We saw a fox up there that was very friendly that enjoyed watching the people eat, hoping to get a little himself. This was one of the best hikes that we have done so far.
After a couple days of Ushuaia we were ready to get out of the cold and get back into summer!
