Aventura en el fin del mundo (Adventure at the End of the World)

Ushuaia is the southernmost inhabitable city in the world, located less than 500 miles from Antarctica. This photograph is from a 4x4 excursion around the area in which we climbed part of the Andes, got stuck in the mud, drove across a lake, canoed across another lake, and explored an abandoned hacienda (large estate farm), then made a communal fire to cook the best grilled meat ever. The photograph shows the bravado of the 4x4 driver who boastfully claimed that he never gets stuck in the mud -- sadly he did and we all helped him get out.
