Image Caption:
Mount Stanley T29

Two views, using different lenses, were taken of Mount Stanley in
December 1988. The volcanic mountain, located in the northern
part of the Western Rift Valley, adjacent to Lake Albert (1)
rises to more than 5000 m in elevation. Snow cover is visible
near the summit of the mountain. Much like Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kil-
manjaro, climate and vegetation change from savanah at the base
of the mountain to alpine or tundra-type conditions near the sum-
mit. Vegetation patterns can be seen on the bottom left view. A
series of escarpments (2) rise from the rift valley floor west of
the mountain. (S27-41-018, S27-40-093)
