Image Caption: Tyrolean Alps and Inn River Valley, Austria
The valley of the Inn River transects this westward view of the Tyrolean Alps, Austria. Rietzer Grieskogel (2887 m) is the peak at the center of the frame; the confluence of the Sill River in the Wipptal (tal = valley) and the Inn, site of the city of Innsbruck, is just east of the mountain. The Ziller River flows in next large valley to the east. The majestic Alpine chain stretches from Iberia to the Caucasus and was created by the collision of the African and Eurasian tectonic plates beginning about 145 million years ago.
