Provo, Utah has beautiful mountains which we climbed on a Diversion (Preparation) Day in 1968 as missionaries.

Mount Timpanogos from near the top of Y mountain in 1968.
Chile's beauty is just spectacular
Andes mountains about 1 hour away from San José de Maipo, the small branch in the Puente Alto Stake where Elder and Sister McMurdie will work for the next 18 months.
The San José de Maipo Branch meets in a converted house in this picturesque village at the foot of the Andes Mountains which are over 14,000 feet in elevation.

It was a beautiful drive from San José de Maipo following a river to the Cordillera (Andes mountains).  We were only about 20 miles from the Argentine border.
