The topography of Africa

Via (vertical scale exaggerated, of course). 

There are 38 mountain ranges in Africa; I was only able to name two.


  1. To be fair, the same list shows 44 mountain ranges in Europe (plus lots of subsidiary ranges). I can name more than two, but most were still a learning experience. Same story for Asia.

  2. There's the Great Rift Valley! How cool.

  3. I have a big composite photo of Earth on my bedroom wall that I just like looking at in the morning.
    One day I noticed the triple peaks/ranges across the Sahara and spent a few days reading about them and the peoples that live there.
    Worth the time.
