Although I am now getting more anxious to get to Palmer, I really enjoyed my brief stay in Chile. The countryside about Punta Arenas was stunning. I particularly enjoyed the rocky inter-coastal scenes, which reminded me of growing up near the coastlines in California. We saw a plethora of different organisms while searching the intertidal including several species of algae along with limpets, salps, urchins, amphipods, and mussels.

How do penguins stay warm in the cold?

How do icebergs float in the ocean?
