Carbajal Valley
The Carbajal Valley (Spanish: Valle Carbajal) is located in the Fuegian Andes of southern Tierra del Fuego Province, Argentina. It is approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) long, running west to east between the Alvear mountain range to the north and the Vinciguerra range to the south. Andes summits in the region are generally less than 1,250 metres (4,100 ft) above sea level. Formed during the Last Glacial Maximum, approximately 20,000 years ago, the nearly U-shaped valley floor is now covered with sphagnum peat bogs and poorly drained mires.Photograph: Godot13
