The last day of this amazing adventure proved to be one of our most spectacular. An early departure from National Geographic Resolution allowed us a full day on land to explore this most iconic part of Patagonia, Chile. We viewed the staggering, glacially carved Cuernos Peaks, which rise over 2,600 meters above the teal-blue lakes below. As we hiked along the foothills of these mountains to stunning waterfalls, we were thrilled to see the clouds clear. The dramatic peaks revealed themselves in artistic perfection. The mountains may have been the highlight, but this pristine landscape also provided great wildlife sightings, including guanacos, flightless rheas, several birds of prey, and various charismatic birds. After a successful day in the field, we returned to the ship that has been our home away from home for over two weeks. We celebrated a successful expedition with our captain, crew, and expedition staff.
