Chacaltaya, La Paz, Bolivia

In 2009, at 17,785 feet in Bolivia's Cordillera Oriental was the Chacaltaya glacier. Before its unexpected melting, it was home to Bolivia's only ski resort and the first tow-rope ever to be built in South America. Today all that remains is a rocky mountain-top that only receives seasonal snowfall.
