1 2271 W of Lago Beretand


Location: Desagüe Lago Carrera (227 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Chile      Date: 22-03-2014
The picture is interesting, I think, for the documentation of the Carretera Austral.
This is the wholly counterintuitive point where, among high mountains, the water leaves Lago Carrera / Buenos Aires, which on its Argentinian side, that is, among very low hills, happens to be blocked by a morenic barrier.
A few metres of free flow, and then the waters linger in another lake, Lago Bertrand (left side of the photo), before giving birth to the huge Rio Baker, whose discharge rate amounts to 900 m^3/sec.
This is a less known corner of Patagonia, and maybe I will present further pictures taken "en las orillas del Baker, donde cantan las grandes corrientes" (Pablo Neruda)

The unnamed summit that I marked "2271 W of Lago Bertrand" is visible also in N.22430 and in N.19839


Beautiful surroundings with interesting information.
Groet uit Nederland.

Wasn't aware of this lake system and its extent - very instructive, thanks for showing! Cheers, Martin
