Mount Bagzan, Air Mountains T39

Mount Bagzan in the Southern Air Mountains can be seen in this
near vertical view taken in October, 1990. Several lava flows
and much faulting are also visible. Mount Bagzan is unique among
the Air Mountains because it has good water resources and sup-
ports a permanent farming population. Its irrigation system
dates back to ancient times. Winds and occasional heavy summer
rains help continue the ongoing erosion process. (S41-75-031)
