Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | The "prow" of Mt. Roraima, one of the most spectacular tepuis in Canaima National Park, straddles the border of Venezuela, Guyana, and Brazil. Over 7,000 feet tall, it's a remnant of the supercontinent Gondwana, and was fictionalized in the movie "Up." The heavily eroded limestone plateau is home to endemic varieties of carnivorous plants and animals. With thanks to Francisco Salas Roche for the offer to fly me around his native land.
