Places I love: Tierra del Fuego

Glacier Alley, Tierra del Fuego

Head south, way south, and before you run out of land at Cape Horn you may find yourself plying the waters of Glacier Alley. I was fortunate enough to do that a number of years ago on a small cruise ship headed to Ushuaia — the most southerly city in the world. ┬áThis sea passage is lined with glaciers slowly carving icebergs off into the ocean. But what struck me was the light. It was early January and the light lingered late on the long days of a southern summer.
