Friday Field Foto #66: Puente del Inca (near Mendoza, Argentina)
In 2006 I had the opportunity to go to a geology conference in Mendoza, Argentina on my way back from field work in Patagonia. Part of this conference, called ‘Backbone of the Americas’, was a day trip from Mendoza at the foot of the Andes up to a view of the highest peak in the western hemisphere, Aconcongua.
The point of the trip was to check out the fold-thrust belt structure of the Andean Cordillera. Along the way we stopped at a popular attraction called Puente del Inca.
To be perfectly honest, I know essentially nothing about this place … it was a really quick stop (and I haven’t tried Googling it either … yeah, I’m lazy).
If anyone knows more about this place – both the natural and human-made structure – please comment below.
