Cape Horn & Return to Ushuaia

Feb 05, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


Our journey to the Antarctic has truly been a story we will share for the rest of lives. But no story is complete without an ending. We found our ending here, as we glimpsed Cape Horn, were guided by our skilled pilot in the Beagle Channel, and lastly set our eyes again upon Ushuaia.

Our story, like all stories, features another important caveat: change. Journeys change those who partake in them. Like those who came before us, we have witnessed the land of icebergs, glaciers, and mountains. We have been changed and shaped by this continent like the ice that forms then crumbles, eventually melting only to re-form again and again.

The above pictures and captions reflect not only our return, but how we have come to finish our story. For we have dove and emerged from the depths below with the knowledge of what lies in the deep.
