Argentina- June 26th, 2010

The Valdes Peninsula (Spanish: Península Valdés) protudes off the northeastern coastline of Chubut Province, in Argentine Patagonia. A few salt lakes can be observed as lighter patches on the otherwise tan and mostly barren land of the peninsula.

Moving to the northwest, a few lakes and rivers are visible in the upper left corner. The rivers are the Neuquén (above) and the Limay (below). The lakes, actually artificial reservoirs, are situated along these rivers.  The two clustered together to the west are part of the Cerros Colorados Complex, the reservoir to their south was created by the El Chocón Dam, and the lake furthest east is called Pellegrini Lake.
