Trip to Antarctica, Patagonia, and Argentina

Cindy and I spent six weeks in Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Patagonia, and Antarctica in early 2008. Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls we did on our own. The Antarctica part of the trip was the "Explorer's Route" trip by Quark Expeditions. Finally, we spent 2 weeks hiking around Patagonia with World Expeditions.

Here is a selection of our favorite 76 photos and videos from our trip.

Here are 5 photographs from each photographer on the Antarctica part of the trip.
