After my 30+ hours of travel, I finally arrived in Punta Arenas, Chile. Once out of the airport, I rented a car and took the 4 hour long drive to my first stop, Puerto Natales. I didn't get to spend a good amount of time there, for it was just being used as a way to lessen the driving. However, Puerto Natales is in fact very beautiful. The lake next to the town is surrounded by snowy mountains and wildlife.
On the drive down, I encountered many different animals. To start off, there were probably hundreds of sheep! They were literally everywhere. I also saw guanacos, which look sort of like alpacas or llamas. Another creature that I wasn't expecting to see, was a fox. I'm not sure what kind of fox it was, but it just ran across the road in front of me!
One of the coolest animals I saw was the rheya. It looks like an ostrich with its fluffy feathers and long legs and neck. I only saw about 5 of those, but they were one of my favorite things I saw during the drive. All of these animals were also accompanied by different types of birds, dozens of cows and horses, and many other animals.
When the time came for the sun to set, I had just finished eating. The sunset was at about 4:30 pm! That's very early considering I am coming from Florida, the Sunshine State. However, the sunset was amazing! The bright oranges, pinks and yellows silhouetted the mountains, emphasizing their unique shape. I captured the sunset by the lake before returning back to my hotel to get a good night sleep!
