Oldoinyo Lengai

 

Erosion

     This is Oldoinyo Lengai - the mountain the Maasai call "Mountain of God" - as seen from the valley floor about 12km away. It rises some 2200m above the valley floor. Although it is an active volcano, there were no fireworks while we were there - not even a puff of smoke!

     On our way to the mountian, we crossed numerous dry dry river beds cutting their way into the underlying ash and lava. This river bed had an deeper channel cut into it producing this interesting pattern.
