Penguin sunset

Cabos Dos Bahias. I don’t recall where we heard about it (Phil?), but it’s another little gem.

There is absolutely nothing out here except empty coastline, penguins, guanaco, skunks, armadillos, tumbleweeds and a few park rangers. No visitors. For two days, we had the entire reserve to ourselves. Cool wildlife, great camping… and it was all libre.

I have to wonder if the people that claim that this drive north is boring didn’t ever get off the highway. The main highway north is terrible – windy, full of trucks, and not much to look at. But, there is some seriously cool stuff out here if you get off the pavement.

fun facts:

-penguins mate for life

-skunks and armadillos love to eat penguin eggs

-penguins don’t give a damn about you or me

    Great pics! Especially penguin and skunk, they almost look related. We saw some nice views on our trip down the east coast, but zero penguins until we got to the west coast. We went to all the places they were supposed to be, but it was the wrong time of year (that would have made it more entertaining for sure). Glad you’re getting the full benefits!
