Tierra del Fuego, the Land of Fire

Tierra del Fuego - Land of Fire

Tierra del Fuego consists primarily of an expansive archipelago, separated by spectacular fjords, with a larger landmass on its Eastern side.  On the North-Eastern side the landscape is primarily grassland steppe and cold climate desert.  As we moved across towards the North-Eastern side of the island we came across a lone Guanaco (Lama guanicoe) as the sun began to set while rain fell in the distance.  The Guanaco is a camelid and is the wild form of the more commonly known domesticated Llama.  It is still widespread across wild areas of Southern South America.
