Image Caption: Laguna Verde, in the Atacama Province of Chile near the Argentine border, lays like a turquoise jewel among the stark black and white snow covered volcanic peaks of the High Andes in this very low angle, early morning shot. The ambient elevation in this part of the Andes is 16,000 ft.(4877 m.) with the highest local peak, Nevada Ojas de Salado (just to the right of the lake) reaching to 23,240 ft. (7084 m.) This same region is pictured in STS93-715-06.
