The Final Stretch

From Puerto Natales I rode to Punta Arenas.

The road to Punta Arenas was asphalt, smooth and scenic, but a bit windy.

I came across this Colombian Adventure Scooter rider who was riding from Colombia to Ushuaia on a Yamaha 125 Scooter.
From Punta Arenas I took a 2 hour ferry ride to the town of Provenir. It was late, so I found an hotel and stayed the night in Provenir.

From Provenir to San Sebastion, the road was dirt and gravel and through the rain.
In San Sebastian I passed through the Argentinian border post.
The border agent incorrectly stamped my temporary driver permit with an exit stamp instead of an entry stamp. Luckily I caught the error and she corrected it.
I passed through the town of Rio Grande and I knew that I was close.
The scenery changed from desert to coast to forrest.
I was getting close and I knew the end of the road was approaching.
I took a break at this scenic overlook to take it all in.
The overlook had a nice view of a lake and the Girabaldi Pass.
And then I arrived in Ushuaia.
