Why are we here???

Up until last week we had many moments (even full days and nights) where we questioned why we came down here. Sure there were moments of fleeting spectacularness but for every one of those moments we'd also have a few of terror and misery. Yesterday was a full day that pushed any doubts whatsoever out of our mind that every single bad moment was soooo worth it.
We are anchored in Brazo norte an arm of the Beagle Channel overlooking about 10 glaciers and unbelievable snow and ice covered peaks. Yesterday was the first day we've had since we've entered the channels that didn't have a cloud in the sky. We met up with long lost friends Rum Doxy and hiked up a ridge overlooking the Strait and spent the whole afternoon basking in the views, sun and warmth. Things were so calm that the snow was reflected in the waters of the Beagle Channel below. There were no cruise ships, sailboats or anyone else that passed all afternoon. We were the only ones on the planet who got to experience this once in a million day. Words, pictures, video or even drone footage can't hope to describe what we saw and felt. Yesterday was a day that we selfishly will keep for ourselves for ever. Never forgetting how special this place really is if you are patient and take the time to get to know her.
We are now just a few days away from civilization. Pictures and lots of posts will flow shortly after that.
All for now
