Argentina – September 24th, 2012

Sediments line the coast of the Argentine provinces of Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego, both part of Patagonia, from the San Jorge Gulf to the Mitre Peninsula.

Visible parallel to the west coast are the Andes Mountains, along the border with Chile. Visible by the mountains are several bright blue glacial lakes (from north to south): Lake O’Higgins/San Martín (the former name is used in Chile, the latter in Argentina), Viedma Lake and Argentino Lake.
