Mali: Dogon Country Landscapes

Geographically, Dogon country is an escarpment of sandstone cliffs rising about 2000 ft above the surrounding flat and arid landscape. It’s very much reminiscent of Utah and the American Southwest – vast stretches of emptiness, twisting gravel roads, sandstone cliffs and overhangs. Just the occasional baobabs remind you that you are in the heart of Sahel in Africa.
