Off to Ushuaia!

“We’re off!” I called to our newfound friends at the Club Nautico in Rio Grande.  “Off to Ushuaia!”

For three years now I’ve been saying we’re going to Ushuaia, but really, we were going to Fairbanks, or White Horse, or Albuquerque or Choluteca or Lima…  In my mind, we were headed to the next city, whatever that may be.

But now – the next city is Ushuaia.  Ushuaia!  It feels so REAL now!

We’ve now entered into the southern part of Tierra del Fuego – the wooded part.  It seems strange to see trees ablaze in fall colors.  Trees!  After spending so much time cycling through barren grasslands, this is a real treat!

Kilometers today:  69
Kilometers to date:  27673


This is the last of the grasslands – we’re in forest now!

If you look closely enough, you can see the mountains ahead – they are the only thing that separates us from Ushuaia!

Fall is here.  Definitely.

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    Yes, Ushuaia belongs to the Andean region, and in the south, is rich in forests.
