Primavera, Tierra del Fuego
Some 130 kilometers south of Porvenir, immersed in the Patagonian pampa that evokes the vastness of Tierra del Fuego, is Bahía Inútil (‘Useless Bay’, named so in 1827 because it did not offer the navigator any major advantages as an anchorage or refuge). Coasts with immense cliffs tell the story of the passage of glaciers covering as far as the Strait of Magellan, and roads narrate the immensity of the spaces, offering pictures of great depth, where you can also see the region’s species, such as guanacos, flamingos and flocks of sheep. All of them under the incessant wind, which allows a few trees to grow horizontally across the coirones-covered steppe.
