chalten at sunset

 

"el chaltén" is the tehuelche name for "the smoking mountain", aka "monte fitz roy", at 49 degrees south, as seen from pliege tumbado (on the argentina side in "parque nacional glacier") as the last rays of light hit the peak during a breaking storm (notice the new snow dusting the ridge in the foreground)
