Day 60: Ushuaia (263 kms)

It's not a race but 60 days to Ushuaia seems pretty fast. Peter did it in a little more than 40, with four months off in the middle! Maybe we'll do a really fast and long ride sometime. For this trip,
I was pleased with the balance of hard riding, siteseeing and down time on this trip.

The town of Ushuaia is undeniably scenic and packed with tourists enjoying the end of the world or preparing to head to Antarctica.

I was able to walk around town and get some of the postcard shots and do the last of my Xmas shopping.

Our campsite was out in the busy national park just outside town. There was a mix of locals and travellers enjoying the beauty of the place: fishing, hiking, swimming, playing and eating. It also contains the symbolic end of the road, although there are certainly roads further south in Chile, just not easily reached.
