Glaciar Martial, you have been conquered

When you think of Gillian and Leah, extreme trekkers might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But today that’s exactly what we were – extreme mountaineer women.

Our mission was to hike until we reached snow, and that’s exactly what we did. Glacier Martial, at about 1300 meters above sea level, didn’t stand a chance.

Can you spot the Canadian monkey?

The best part was not the Glaciar but the stellar views of Ushuaia and the Beagle Channel
