“Cueva de las Manos”, literally “the Cave of Hands”, is located in a remote canyon in southern Argentina. The rock paintings were made by hunter-gatherers at the end of the last ice age and are as old as 9000 years. Bone-made pipes were used for spraying pigments on the wall of the cave to create hand silhouettes. Most of the hands are left hands, which suggests that painters put their left hand on the wall and held the spraying pipe with their right hand. However, holding the back of the right hand against the wall and using the pipe with the left hand would produce the same look.
Patagonia is best known for its mountains and lakes, but we experienced so much more than that on our 3,000 mile journey up Route 40.
When I was a middle school teacher there was a kid named Zac who was super into outdoor adventure sports. He joined the climbing club I advised and when he was in high school we even teamed up on some climbs together. Zac and I have stayed in touch over the years. He's now an engineer and inventor. He founded POA Labs and is the creator of the GoHawk. I'm so proud of him! Please check it out, share and support if you like what you see.
Sorry for all the images of this mountain...they may be getting tiresome. The landscape was so spectacular and the light and weather we had was so good that I keep finding more photos that excite me.
Christian led the group to this amazing vista. I felt the high desert vegetation and the curve of the river in the deep gorge provided a less common perspective on a very well known scene and the twilight glow really lit up the land for a few moments. A point of trivia: this skyline is the one that has appeared on the Patagonia clothing label since the company began.
The Cascade Center of Photography will be leading another trip to Patagonia next year and I have video courses teaching the Photoshop techniques I use in my image developing. Let me know if you would like information on either one.
