Falling Waters Eighteen: Chile and Antarctica

IMG_9258

What’s a good way to fritter away a lot of time? Start blogging about your travels. For me, it’s not just about posting my amateur photos, it’s about learning. I spend more time researching than I do writing, and I truly love every minute of it, even when, or especially when, it takes me down a long winding path to knowledge.

February, 2017

While on a cruise around South America, we visited Puerto Chacabuco in Aysén Province, at the northern end of Patagonia. I misspelled this name as Chucabaca in some earlier posts, apparently confusing it with Han Solo’s BFF, Chewbacca.

We took a choppy boat ride to Isla Carmen, also known as Deer Island.We didn’t see any deer, but did see a glacier fed waterfall on a nearby island, Isla Partida.

As we sailed through the Chilean Fjords, we were treated to distant views of several more waterfalls.

As we cruised further south, we encountered several glacial fed waterfalls. Amalia Glacier is located in Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, and Italia Glacier in Alberto de Agostini National Park.

Decepción Island and Admiralty Bay are both in Antarctica, in the South Shetland Islands Archipelago. These areas are home to hundreds of thousands of penguins, and we were so busy looking at them that we almost missed the waterfalls.
