Atop the Rift Valley
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a view from the western cliffs of the Great Rift Valley in Ethiopia. The Great Rift Valley extends from Northern Syria down to Mozambique. Some of the highest mountains in Africa make up its edge. This perspective was taken from ~3,500m in altitude from an Afro-alpine grassland home to many unique and endemic species including: the gelada monkey (a few seen here rising from their sleeping cliffs in the morning), the Ethiopian Wolf (rarest canid in the world, ~500 remain), and the wattled ibis. In the far distance, a volcano (dormant, extinct?) rises out of the haze.|
