40 degrees North

It took me about 20 hours from late summer to late winter.

And equally as long from 40 South to 40 North.

I noticed, with a healthy dose of surprise, that Boulder, Colorado, lies almost exactly as far from the equator as San Martin de los Andes. On the other side, however. Consequently, a trip from SMA to BDR brings me in about 40 hours from summer to winter. And although I travelled at the end of the season, the difference was rather harsh. Dry and hot in the lower Patagonian Andes, eight inches of new snow and barely above freezing in the foothills of the Rockies.

But this wasn't the only difference, as a glimpse through the viewfinder reveals..
