towers over the Andes at 22,840'.
The name means "Stone Sentinel" in Quechua, a Native
American dialect. It is the highest point outside of Asia - one
of the 7 highest summits in the world.
Today it is topped by a spectacular lenticular cloud. Clouds like this are typical in windy parts of the world like Chile. Or perhaps a flying saucer is landing on Aconcagua!
