Aconquija and Cajon Ranges (NASA, Argentina Winter/Spring 1997). The forested
Aconquija Range, part of the Andes chain, includes many peaks exceeding 4880 m.
The high plains to the east (bottom of image) are semi-arid agricultural lands
producing mostly grains, cotton, and flax. Several small cities are discernible
along the foothills of the Aconquija; from north to south (right to left) they
are Monteros, Concepción, Aguilares, and Villa Alberdi. Numerous streams,
tributaries of the Dulce River, descend from the mountains into the plains past
the cities. The southern Cajon Range is at upper right, and the yellowish Arenal
flats are at upper center.
