37596 Cotahuasi           Discovered 1991 Nov. 9 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
The Cotahuasi Canyon, near the Peruvian city of Arequipa, was formed by the Cotahuasi river. Running between the enormous mountain massifs of Coropuna (6425 m) and Sulimana (6093m), it is the deepest canyon (3354 m) in the world.
