Atlas mountains
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Atlas mountains are a mountain system in northwest Africa extending about 2400km through Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia, and including The Rock of Gibraltar. The highest peak is Toubkal, with an elevation of 4165 m (13,665 ft), located in southwestern Morocco. The Atlas ranges separate the Mediterranean & Atlantic coastlines from the Sahara Desert.

Because North America and Africa were connected, the Atlas mountains form part of the same mountain chain as the Appalachians in North America.
