Cape Horn
Bottom of the world
Return to South America gallery       Homepage

Treacherous. It looks exactly what you'd expect it to look like. Perhaps it was the weather this day, but the rugged, remote, stormy outcrop at the bottom of the world is how I expected to find it. This set of photos shows various scenes of the Cape itself (first two photos, for example) and other rugged, wind-swept lands nearby. The only signs of human presence in this remote corner of the world are a lighthouse, Chilean flag and monument at the cape consisting of two triangles that outline an albatross.

Can you spot the distant ship?:
