Beagle Channel

Day 16: Saturday, January 19, 2002

We can no longer see the up-valley slopes, as the clouds have closed in.
But the sun highlights the ice near the Beagle Channel.


Glacial melt gushes over a large rock at the back of this little cove. We can see that many of these waterfalls in a small area could make mud soup of a fairly large river.

A View To the East

This attractive slope and waterfall was on the south side of the channel.

We're past the most scenic part of the channel, and the light is getting worse.
It's time to quit for the evening.

Tomorrow we dock at Punta Arenas on Magellan Strait, then fly to Puerto Natales, then take a three-hour bus ride to Torres del Paine National Park in the Andes Mountains. We'll see some spectactular scenery. Come alone with us.
