Mount Olivia at 4,350 ft (1,326 m) towers over Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, billed as the southernmost city in the world. Its familiar pointed peak, the western extension of the Eastern Fuegian Cordillera, is easily picked out from other nearby mountaintops. Ushuaia is located on the northern shore of the Beagle Channel, situated about 6 miles (10 km) to the west of Mount Olivia, here pictured in mid-summer. Two small tidewater glaciers (South Glacier and De Agostini Glacier, seen at top center) flow from Mount Olivia's southern and southwestern flanks. Photo taken on January 18, 2018.
