Random information on the term “Mountain pass”:
The Abra del Acay in La Poma Department, Salta Province, Argentina is the highest point in Argentina’s National Route 40. Located at 24°23′S 66°14′W / 24.383°S 66.233°W / -24.383; -66.233Coordinates: 24°23′S 66°14′W / 24.383°S 66.233°W / -24.383; -66.233, its altitude is 4,972 meters (16,312 ft), even though an old sign informs visitors it stands at 4,895 meters (16,060 ft).
The Abra del Acay is approximately 25 kilometers (16 mi) geodesic distance southeast from San Antonio de los Cobres, although the direct route by road is about 45 kilometers (28 mi).
Inaugurated on 8 July 1960 after three years of construction, this unpaved part of the National Route 40 is only suitable for all-terrain vehicles, with the exception of some months in the year when meteorological and maintenance conditions allow normal vehicles to transit. The road inclination of 4.5% and oxygen deprivation due to altitude make the crossing difficult for both vehicles and people.
Random information on the term “GAP”:
A gap is a land form that is a low point or opening between hills or mountains or in a ridge or mountain range. It may be called a col, notch, pass, saddle, water gap, or wind gap, and geomorphologically are most often carved by water erosion from a freshet, stream or a river. Gaps created by freshets are often, if not normally, devoid of water through much of the year, their streams being dependent upon the meltwaters of a snow pack. Gaps sourced by small springs will generally have a small stream excepting perhaps during the most arid parts of the year.
Water gaps of necessity often cut entirely through a barrier range and riverine gaps may create canyons such as the riverine gaps of the Danube River, Lehigh River Gorge, the Colorado River’s Grand Canyon and the Genesee River. Such cuttings may expose millennia of strata in the local rock column writing the geologic record.
