The scenery in the Andes is quite spectacular. I didn't see much wildlife in the Andes. I got close to the highest mountain in the Ander, Aconcagua.
The drive from Córdoba into the Andes goes first through the hills around Córdoba, then through the fairly flat Pampas, till you reach the foothills of the Andes. From there it goes high up into the mountains till you reach almost 3,000 meters (9,800 feet) at the highest point of the mountain pass to Chile.
On the way I visited the Parque Nacional Sierra de la Quijadas, a beautiful national park. The pictures of the Gray Fox were taken in that park.
In the highest parts of the Andes, the road was still not passable without chains. The scenery in the high Andes valleys is spectacular. From there I drove back down, crossing the high plains and then taking a narrow switch back road down into the Pampas.
In Argentina I visited also the Cataratas de Iguazú (Iguazú Falls). The pictures from there are shown on a separate page.
