WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

Nevada Queva, Argentina, taken around December 10 - 2008. Altitude 6130 meters above Sea Level (about 19.000 feet). Still Snow on the Northern slopes - even less than 2 weeks before mid summer on the southern hemisphere. But at this hight, it should have been lot's of snow, unless in this very dry part of the Andes.

Wow! A lovely photo. You climbed up a mountain to take this picture? Was the air thin at the top of the mountain?

Great shot. We in California do not take blue skies for granted because we dont get many of them in the summer due to the smog. Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)

Those pups didn't want to walk they wanted a bite of steak. LOL

Driving over the dam shows you just how much snow has been lacking for a long time. It's still a beautiful shot! :)
