South Georgia

I spent the last three days on South Georgia, surrounded by nature at its most gargantuan, if not its tenderest. When not gaping at the massive pointed mountains or the mammoth blue ice glaciers, I was busy trudging through marshes of soft, glowing green moss or observing the wobbly movements of a three-day old penguin chick.

This sub-Antarctic isle is more than a hundred miles long and yet virtually uninhabited by humans–to visit, even briefly, was an unforgettable gift.
