“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!
Enjoying cycling past the Atlantic Ocean
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.
