The Mountain of the Black Wind

A train of porters makes it's way across the African interior, climbing steadily to the peak known as the Mountain of the Black Wind.

Another journal stuffer from the Masks of Nyarlathotep project. The original dates from 1921 and shows an expedition from the British Museum crossing a ridge above the village of Bihanga in what is now Uganda. Click through for the high resolution version.

Most of the ones for the Masks project are from vintage issues of National Geographic.
