Fantastic Features of the Andes Mountains
The longitude of the Andes Mountains is 70˚ west and the latitude of the Andes is 30˚ south. It is in the Western coast of South America. It is a mountain chain, and it spreads throughout North Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Columbia, and of course, Chile! The Andes Mountains contain a lot of volcanoes. The Andes Mountain is one of the biggest barriers. The Andes Mountains is a rural area because the are not a lot of people in this area.
In the lower slopes of the mountain, people grow oranges, cocoa, and coconuts. They probably grow them in Chile since it's so cold in the Andes. Higher up in the mountain, people grow coffee, quinine, rubber, tobacco, pineapple and citrus fruit. Other crops people grow are rice, corn, onion, and sugar cane! So many wonderful crops!
The Wonders Of The Weather
Northern Chile is very hot and really dry. There are prevailing winds in Chile. It is between 30˚ and sometimes it is 40˚ in Southern Chile. Sometimes in the summer it is 75˚ to 83˚.
