Before Ushuaia

A ten minute taxi ride from Ushuaia took us east along the Beagle Channel to an old lighthouse from where a path continued into the woods.

It was Sunday afternoon and a popular walk for the locals carrying their mate (tea) flasks for picnics with a view. We came across the evocative Estancia Tunel – a 19th Century homestead built by pioneers and sheep ranchers. The rusty remains of the barrel factory and sawmill were very early European footprints on this inspiring landscape.

Imagine being an indigenous Indian looking on from the woods.
