Geology Picture of the Week, July 26-Aug 1, 2009: Amazing Jeita Grotto
Jeita Grotto ^

Posted on 07/30/2009 8:17:33 PM PDT by cogitator

I found out about this place because of a news item about the "New 7 Wonders" of the world. It's a nominee. Now, I don't expect that I'll have any travel plans that take me to Beirut, but if for some strange reason I ended up there, I would have to see this place.

I think one of the amazing things about the Internet is that it allows us to see places that we'll probably never have a chance to visit. I've posted a lot of those as these Geology Pictures of the Week. I hope I'll get to see a few of the places that I've posted pictures of. Hopefully some of you will get to see some of them, too.

Click through. They truly are amazing pictures. I’m excited that I will be seeing the grotto this summer in person. Lebanon is a gorgeous tiny country. Between the beautiful mountains, charming villages, and the whole country being along the Mediterranean, it’s a shame we have to deal with Hezbollah and our dear neighbours...

Reminds me of the cave of Nerda, Spain.

Nerda, Spain.

I think you mean Nerja. A friend of mine is a doctor there.

That’s also true of Playboy.
