Here, near Puerto Bueno, the mountains look wintry enough,but farther south the snow line atthis season reaches the water's edge. Small roving bands of canoe Indians (Alikulufs) are the only inhabitants ofthe desolate lands that flank the Patagonian Channels. In these protected waterways ships escape the tempestuous seas encountered outside Cape Horn.
