Patagonia Sunday: Mt Fitzroy

Mt Fitzroy from the Argentine side.  Apparently the mountain sits on the border with Chile. 

Fitzroy sits near the town of Chalten, which was a disputed area claimed by Chile.  So the Argentine government encouraged migration to the area to bolster the population against Chilean advances.  Remember that President Mehnem was voted out because he sign a treaty with Chile that gave up more land.  Basically the entire border is in dispute.
