Monday Geology Picture: Tropic of Capricorn

Tropic of Capricorn statue, a roadside attraction in Botswana.

I recently traveled to Botswana, and I was delighted to find a statue marking the Tropic of Capricorn as a roadside attraction. This statue is brand new and was unveiled earlier this year. Check out this article for some more information.

Here are a couple pictures of the informational signs associated with the statue:

The statue is brand new, having been unveiled earlier in 2018.

 

Informational sign on the Tropic of Capricorn. Click to enlarge. I love how the sign describes the Tropic of Capricorn as “an imaginary line”. 

If you ever find yourself in Botswana, please visit the statue! I enjoyed the stop greatly.
