The Broken Bridge

Patagonia is marked with a change of terrain every half hour or so. The 40km hike took me from mountains to plains to rivers to forests to swamps the to rolling hills. All of these would be re-combined into interesting formations that kept my camera full and my backup system whirring away. I'm glad the 20 pound battery of the D3X lasts about 6 months (exaggeration... but not by much)!


This was a particularly dense area of forest that was fed by a nearby stream system that came tumbling down off the Andes. I came across this old bridge. There is no telling how long it had been there... I tried to imagine it was built by Fuegian Indians back in the day...
