This is Lapataia Bay in Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego National Park, the southern terminus of the Pan-American Highway. Alaska is 17,848 kilometers north. When I arrived, a car with British Columbia plates was just pulling out of the parking lot.
That’s me next to the sign which, I just found out, was carved by Carlos, my host for the week in Ushuaia, when he worked in the park as a ranger back in 1992. Small world at the end of the world, isn’t it?
Photo specs: 100 ASA, 15sec at f22 with an 8-stop ND filter. More about this extraordinary park and the land it protects and celebrates soon.
