|It's 291 nautical miles from Montt to our second|
stop at Chacabuco south through the Golf of Corcovado.
|It's about a day and a half by ship between the red pins.|
|At sunrise on Tuesday 1/22/19 we awoke to this view from our balcony on the |
ship's port side with Chacabuco visible (below) from the starboard.
|Joe & Mary Mayberry, Gib & Marti Armstrong and|
my wife Rita model Chacabuco January mid-summer fashions.
BTW, that's our Norwegian Sun anchored to the right.
|On the other side of the river from the image above, Chacabuco sits|
in a river valley and is beginning to sprawl as a result of
its replacement of Aisén in 1991 as the region's major port.
|As you can see, the topography is rugged and mountainous. |
Our bus had an ancient low gear which left us expecting to push.
|The Simpson's a nice mountain river, and well, ho-hum. Perhaps if you are a Saudi |
this is inspiring. And certainly to fly fishers it's inspirational. I'm neither. Seen one river,
seen 'em all? Well no, but this one is pretty average even within its mountainous setting.
Note, just to the right of the base of the lower waterfall. See the guy? I left him there
to put the height of these glacial fed falls in perspective. Rain returned as I teetered
atop the two-lane highway bridge's railing to grab this shot above the stream.
In the very center of the port sits Radio Chacabuco there on the right. It was hidden behind a few downtrodden
shops but worth the effort. See the dirt road? What you can't see well in this painting without blowing it up is the line of new construction there between the mountain base and the field at the road's end.
