    Guanaco
    2 more images

    In Terre del Fuego, you will see many herds of rust colored guanaco. They are closely related to the llama and Alpaca. They remind me of very large deer. They are very fast on their feet which is a good thing since there is a lot of open country here with no place to hide.
    Native hunters ate them and dressed in their skins.
    They are left to run free in Chile.

    Lago Blanco

    Lago Blanco is a great place for camping and fishing.
    It is 240km south east of Povenir.
    Except for some other lone fishermen we had it all to ourselves.
    The guide was lucky enough to catch a spotted trout for our dinner.
    If you are very lucky, early in the morning you may spot the condor that lives in the hills
    in the background of the picture.
    It was to late in the day when we arrived.

    A place to spend the night

    Cameron

    We spent the night at a house in Cameron.
    It is about 2 1/2 hrs drive from Povenir and the roads from there either go on south or cross the border into Argentina.
    It is a very small village with a hand full of houses, a church, and a 2x4 super mercado.
    There isn't even a gas station in the village.

    Leaving from the Hosteria Los Flamencos your tour guide will drive you through the Chilean Tierre del Fuego and on to Usuaia, Argentina.
