Image Caption: Coast of the People's Republic of Yemen, Arabian
Peninsula.

Now-dry watercourses head northward from the coastal range into the
Arabian Desert. Deep green vegetation surprises the eye in spots along
the coastal escarpment; vegetation thins out between 3500 and 4000
feet of elevation. The presence of coastal stratus in this photograph
suggests that the vegetation may be watered by fog and/or mist, rather
than rain.
