The Beagle Channel

January 29, 2010

This morning we did scenic cruising through the Beagle Channel, the part of it dubbed “Glacier Alley”.   Here we passed four or five glaciers, all majestic.  One of them had the most amazing waterfall between the glacier and the ocean channel.   The weather conditions were windy and a bit rainy, but not so much so that we could not enjoy the scenery.  The whole area is somewhat reminiscent of the Alaska inside passage, but at the same time it is quite different.

At one point we passed what looked like a large house, and a little later we passed a sail boat.  It is amazing to think that anyone would live so far out in the wilderness.
