After docking at Ushuia I boarded a catamaran to view the wildlife inhabiting small islands in the area.

The ship left Punta Arenas going back out the Magellan Channel to the Pacific, South and then turning East into the Beagle Channel on the way to Ushuaia.  The ship passed by glaciers along the way right as the sun was rising.  Limited lighting and a moving ship made for difficult photography.

It takes over 2 days to sail from Puerto Montt to the Magellan Channel.  Most of this time the ship is in an inside passage with mountains on either side.  These images are from the second day.  I was extremely lucky with the weather.  The ship’s naturalist said he had never seen it so good in 5 years.

Chile’s West coast is lined with islands towering over the channel between them.  I awoke at sunrise and took the first few photos from my stateroom.  At higher elevations there were glaciers.

The Big Island is mostly covered by lava fields and volcanic ash. The beaches are no exception. Few of them are sandy. While visiting the petroglyphs, I spoke to a lady who said “I don’t do drugs, but there are some trippy looking trees up at the North end of this island. Just drive past Hawi until the road ends.” She forgot to mention the steep trail down to the beach.
