The mountains of Tierra del Fuego

Mountains loom over Ushuaia, pushing the town against the waters of the Beagle Channel. Some look as if they could be climbed on an easy stroll, others look like serious challenges, but the weather can make all excursions difficult.

You've gone off the edge of the real, this looks like a train model mountain, or a movie set mock-up. Too strange and extreme to be an actual landscape.

Believe me, it's real, Zhoen. I'll probably be in among them tomorrow, and I'm hoping the weather will be better (still going prepared, though).

I'm assuming that this, for you, is an easy stroll?

Miguel — ha! The sight of this one made me shiver. If there's an easy way up, it's certainly not visible from Ushuaia.
    I visited the park with a couple of new friends today, and did some beautiful, easy walks (and I mean easy by most standards). You'll love it here.
