Fort Bulnes in early Spring

ORP took their first trip of the season to visit Fort Bulnes at the end of September.  Evidence of the fading winter was visible only in the brown hues of the  grass and the mostly bare branches.  However we found signs of spring emerging through green leaves  budding on trees, the retreating snow line, and the minimal quantity of layers we had to wear for the day.

Fort Bulnes offers fully guided tours through the park led by local guides knowledgable about the history of the region’s first settlers.  We learned how the people lived, learned and eventually migrated to Punta Arenas, leaving a forgotten town that went virtually undiscovered for many, many years.  Today the park is beautifully reconstructed using traditional architecture and materials and offers several kilometers of hiking trails which weave around the dramatic landscape.
