Memory Monday: A South American Tour…Tierra del Fuego

Beagle Channel

This week I have a few more images from the southern tip of South America, in Argentina. Some of them are lacking information, and try as I might, I haven’t been able to figure them out. I’m talking specifically about the next two photos, which appear to show some large dogs in enclosures, playing around while people stand in the background. (As always, you can click on any image to enlarge it for a better look.)

My best guess is that these are either rescued strays or perhaps sled dogs, hanging around and waiting for the snow to return. Snow sledding is a huge tourist draw in this land of extreme winters — something that had never even occurred to me.

Both this sign and the one below are basically saying that this is the end of the road — you can’t go any further south by land! Argentina’s National Route 3 runs from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia and forms an unofficial link in the 19,000-mile-long Pan-American Highway.

This photo was labeled “Upland Geese”

Lake Fagnano (also known as Lake Cami) is one of the largest lakes in the world and lies in the middle of the Magellan Fault.
