Chile is chilly!

Good evening scenic enthusiasts!

Today I want to share with You the gem I have found - Chile.

  1. I started off in Balmaceda airport (SCBA), where I took off from runway 27, where I had to climb at 3000 feet per minute, so I wouldn’t hit the mountainside.

  1. This is lake Verde:

3-6. Now I am approaching Lake O’Higgins and the Chilean snowy mountain ranges.

  4. Here we see the glacier Viedma feeding the freshwater lake Viedma:

  1. This is glacier Upsala, which feeds lake Argentino.

  1. As I start my descent, I look at the half-frozen waters that snake out of the Torres del Paine National Park and feed the Pacific Ocean.

  1. And finally, I take one last peek at the Chilean mountains and land at El Calafate airport (SAWC), which is perpendicular to the freshwater lake Argentino, as we saw from above in picture number eight.

Yep, before the scenery I hadn’t even touched South America, perhaps just once. This is like my third real SA flight and I hope to be doing a lot more in Peru, Brazil, etc., because from what I’ve seen they’re extraordinary!

If You read it from start to finish and/or seen the flight plan, You would’ve seen that it was SAWC (El Calafate) airport. :)

Thank You all for the feedback, but does anyone have any more?

This is beautiful! Love the pics! Yep, Chile is Chilly! Fresh cold waters to the glaciers!
