Kenya, Eastern Africa
|The second largest mountain in Africa after Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya was created by geological activity around the African Rift Valley. Rift valleys form where continental plates diverge, or pull apart. The East African Rift is the largest such feature in the world, over 4,000 miles (6,700 kilometers) wide. Red tones reveal thriving vegetation on the mountain slopes and areas with high precipitation.
