The trail crested over a hillside mound that revealed a familiar landscape. A short distance ahead in the foreground of the glacier’s edge, I could see a flat plateau where I once camped two nights with Tim, two International Mountain Guides and three other climbers back in August of 2012. The glacier, having a significantly greater ice surface at that time, extended lower down the mountain and snow covered mass areas at a lower elevation. In fact, sections of the trail below the ridge were covered with snow. Today, however, the camp area had no trace of snow, only ice on the glacier.

Everest, Mt. Fuji can also be dangerous. The mountain looks beautiful from afar with its snow top. But during the season when climbers are allowed to climb, there is no actual snow on the mountain. In fact it is not recommended for people to climb the mountain during winter because of the harsh weather.
Alpine Biome: Information Report By Kent McMahon 1. Introduction This Information Report will contain detailed information about the Alpine Biome of the European Alps. The Alps are one of the mountainous and coldest biomes in Europe. Despite these harsh conditions, the Alps support a rich biodiversity of 30,000 fauna and flora. Furthermore, detailed information about a specific fauna and flora species that have unique adaptations to survive in the Alpine climate, will also be contained in this information report.
Nowadays the young generation never saw it, nevertheless, is being curious. When they are in an Alpine tour always take a thought to see it.

I could see the whole mountain in all its beauty. I could see the trails covered in fresh, powder-like snow and the trees swaying in the wind. I witnessed all the mountain’s animals crawl out of the winter homes to forage for their daily meal. The entire mountain seemed to be alive, filled with activity. But the most intricate and intoxicating thing about the mountain was its appearance in the sky.
The average downpour is 30 cm a year. It is very much alike to the Tundra biome. Both the alpine and the tundra biomes are cold and barren to the bone throughout the year.

Introduction Timbuktu is located in Mali, Sahara Desert, near the edge the Niger River. It was discovered as a World Heritage Site in 1988 and is listed on UNSECO as a cultural site. Timbuktu was a spiritual and intellectual capital and a center for the propagation of Islam throughout Africa in the 15th and 16th centuries. Now in the 21st century, it is home of Koranic Sankore University. With a population of approximately 30,000 as for 2017, Timbuktu was the product of African and Arabs architecture but is continuously being restored because the monuments today are under threat from desertification.
Characteristics of an Alpine Biome: The Alpine biome is summed up as ice, snow, high winds, basic things that come with winter. Alpine biomes can be found all over the world in a variety of mountain regions. Usually they are at an altitude of 10,000 feet or more, and lies just below an snowline of a mountain. In the Rocky Mountains of North America you would first begin in a desert biome, Then as you proceed to climb through a brief forest biome, steppe biome, taiga biome, and grassland biome before you would actually reach the Alpine biome. During the summertime, temperatures in Alpine biomes reach around 40 to 60° F or 10 to 15° C, however, during winter, temperatures will well below go freezing, then if the altitude rises it can get even colder and can last from October to May.
