Spine of the South, time lapse from Ecuador to Patagonia

Travel the longest mountain range in the world, The Andes, via this time lapse compilation video by photographer Eric Hanson. Taking several hundred thousand photos during his seven month trip along South America’s Andean spine, Hanson captured some awe-inspiring skies and landscapes, from Ecuador to Patagonia: Spine of the South. A few facts via Wikipedia:

The Andes are the world’s highest mountain range outside of Asia. The highest mountain outside Asia, Mount Aconcagua, rises to an elevation of about 6,961 m (22,838 ft) above sea level. The peak of Chimborazo in the Ecuadorean Andes is farther from the Earth’s center than any other location on the Earth’s surface, due to the equatorial bulge resulting from the Earth’s rotation. The world’s highest volcanoes are in the Andes, including Ojos del Salado on the Chile-Argentina border which rises to 6,893 m (22,615 ft).
