Image Caption: Glaciers in the Andes Mountains jut into two lakes in the Patagoinian lowlands. Lago Viedman appears at center in the top portion of the 70mm frame. Lago Argentina barely appears in the frame at far right. The glaciers descend from the very high and wet mountains of southern Chile (peaks reach 3,600 meters) in a range locally known as Cordillera Darwin. The lakes in the picture were carved out by the glaciers during advances of the ice.
