South American landscapes

In early 2004 I travelled from Tierra del Fuego in far southern Argentina up the length of Chile and into southern Peru and adjacent areas of Bolivia, a journey of many thousands of kilometres yet but a tiny portion of this mighty and diverse continent. This was my last major journey of the pre-digital era so these are a heavily-culled gallery of scans from transparencies; however the quality isn't always all that I could wish for.
These photos are arranged more or less in order as I took them: Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, Chilean Lakes District, Atacama Desert, Peru, Bolivia.
Many photos have commentary which will be missed if you view this as a slideshow.
