the fingerprints of mountains

Last entry I said my thumb would be a steep climb if the lines of its print were topographical. Here now are some mountains' "fingerprints."

I was imagining a person who had the fingerprints of a mountain peak. [personal profile] sovay asked who would have these. I'm not sure, but I can imagine an egotistical jewel thief or other flamboyant criminal who would mask their own fingerprints with the prints of a mountain.

Which one though?

Mout Rainier looks good:



How about K2?



The volcano Popocatépetl has a beautiful fingerprint:






Fingerprints for the Matterhorn and Mt. Fuji are in comments (Dreamwidth comments) in the previous entry. Do you have a favorite mountain? Check out its fingerprint. You can see the fingerprint of Nyiragongo, the volcano in my icon, here.

My favorite mountain? Here on Earth, Mt. Elden, in Arizona. I still remember seeing it when I visited Flagstaff in my first (overland) trip to California.

If we expand it to the whole solar system, Olympus Mons on Mars. It's a giant shield volcano (similar to the ones in Hawaii, but with no ocean to cover its base), the biggest mountain anywhere.

Mt. Elden makes a great print:



Olympus Mons has a very balanced print:

Some pretty heavy duty re-entrants on that map. Looks like quite a haul to bushwhack to the top.
