- from South America
When you of think of a cone, you might think of a geometric shape. Or maybe a scoop of ice cream sitting on top of a funnel-shaped wafer.
But it’s also a word used in the term that refers to the southernmost part of South America. The Southern Cone is the place where the continent ends and the Andes Mountains begin. Where the shadow of the Andes does more than just block the sun. And where a two-hour flight or two-day boat trip can carry you to Antarctica.
