I took many photos of the penguins, sea lions, and cormorans of the islands of the Beagle Channel, south of Ushuaia, Argentina.
Watch the penguins of Magdalena Island in action below, in this video I shot aboard the Ushuaia Explorer. Enjoy.
See a map of the Beagle Channel below — the green arrow is on the north side of the town of Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world.

Spent my last few days in the wonderful city of Santiago with a sidetrip to the coast at Vina del Mar.

I took some short videos on my trip — this one was from the catamaran trip to various glaciers in Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. According to the guides, three days prior to our tour, the Upsala Glacier began breaking up sending off these brilliant icebergs seen below and in my photos. Usually the catamaran would go right up to the glacier — which is 4 times the size of Buenos Aires and twice the size of the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. Temperatures had been warm — even for summer.
Also, check out the band just after New Years (and finally it begins getting dark) at Los Cauquenes near Ushuaia, Argentina.
Part 3, the final installment of my Patagonia photos, from Ushuaia, Argentina — the southermost city in the world and capital of Tierra del Fuego province. Photos from Santiago Chile will follow — I am now back in Los Angeles, feeling great, refreshed, and back to the so-called grind. Let’s grab coffee or a drink! Happy New Year.
