  Title: Andes Mountain Range and Bolivian Rain Forest Panorama
  Description:
  This panoramic view, looking toward the northeast across south central 
  Bolivia (18.0S, 63.0W) shows the Andes Mountains, the foothills of the
  Andes   and the Bolivian plains where several examples of deforestation and
  land  clearing can be seen.  Most striking in this view are the differences
  in  elevations ranging from mountains exceeding 15,000 ft. to the plains
  below at  just over 1,000 ft. where clouds and haze obscure some of the
  forested areas.
