A Travellerspoint blog

B) Visit two places of interest

The first place of interest that I will visit is Salta. I come here to visit the Guemes Monument. The Guemes Monument is June 17 is the anniversary death of General Martin Miguel de Guemes. He was the leader of the Gaucho Army which defended the Northwest territories of Argentina during the war of independence. He was wounded so badly it caused death in his home town on the night of June 16, 186 years ago. This weekend is now a major celebration. (travel blog)

The second place of interest that I will visit is Ushuaia. Tierra del Fuego National Park is what I will be visiting. This national park is located west and northwest of Ushuaia. It goes from the Beagle Channel north along the Chilean border. This park is famous for hiking, and the scenery has waterfalls, mountains, glaciers, forests, and lakes. There also is fauna to be sought out such as, foxes, beavers and guanacos (family of llama). I can get to this national park by riding the Train at the end of the world. This train runs on the outskirts of Ushuaia for about 5 km.
