That second one looks like a kid left his toys scattered around.

Whale bones in the desert? and there are still deniers of a Great Flood.

The whales existed long before the floods at the end of the ice age.

Nice photos. The Egypt one is cool. Now - I imagine that it is called Valley of the Whales because the large rock masses look like beached Whales? (And, later on there actually were whale fossils found?)
