Apologies! So here's two Geology Pictures of the Week, very different.
Ansel Adams-ish picture of Old Faithful (click for 2x):
And here's Wadi Hitan in Egypt, where whale fossils are found (this is a National Geographic wallpaper image). Click for 2x.
1600 x 1200 wallpaper
NatGeo article, " Valley of the Whales"
** ping ** (sorry I’m late)
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?)
Depends on what kind of week you are having........
