Patagonia with parents part 4

Crossing the Strait of Magellan over onto Tierra del Fuego was like one of those childhood dreams that you never think would ever happen. I can remember learning about these places in geography and history and wondering what it was like in those far away and mysterious places. On the first crossing a penguin torpedoed through the water next to the ferry. The crossing back to the mainland was a bit rough as waves came over into the ferry and over top the bus as we all rocked back and forth with the rolls.As they say, "this isn't the end of the world, but you can see it from here." Ushuaia claims the title of being the most southern city in the world. It is on the Beagle Channel on the southern end of Tierra del Fuego.

Purple mushrooms in the Tierra del Fuego National Park. We took a nice day hike along the shore and inlets.
