After adding Frank Daineses freeware I started a flight from El Calafate, Patagonia, Argentina. [Yes, there is extensive use of his fantastic freeware in this post - it fits well into OLC and adds the missing, spectacular mountains.]

Climbing out over Lago Argentino...

... and the nearby Lago Viedma.

By car it would be a 3 hour trip into this scenery, the flight was about 40 minutes.

The village is El Chalten, living mainly from tourism in Summer. In Winter it is mostly deserted.

Hikers go up to the glacier lakes ...

... to visit the iconic Cerro Torre. Obviously one of the world´s most difficult mountains to climb, 10262 ft high. The first proven ascent was completed in 1974. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerro_Torre

Beautiful valleys as well...

Hi Gerold

Awesome shots from Argentina

We lack a lot of enhancement in SA land class

I flight often in Patagonia as it is "another world"

Where can I get that scenery to improve as well my OLC? If you don't mind

Cheers

Carlos

Wow, fantastic scenery and shots, Gerold! Very spectacular scenery!

Danke Lars! Wouldn´t it be great to have these packs integrated in Orbx scenery? I am sure many of us would pay a premium for such an "OLC plus" product...
