Where On (Google) Earth #603
Last week, in a moment of random thought, I suggested reviving our beloved Where On Google Earth (#WOGE). @i_rockhopper got to work right away restarting the contest, and I tracked down the image, thus earning myself the right to host the next and an hour of handicap according to the Schott Rule. Here’s your next challenge in this geoscience reverse image search!

Where on (Google) Earth #201 – hosted for JimmyJames
Having not posted anything for a while, I was trying to think up something non-taxing to write about (don’t want to take on too much on my birthday!)

Where on (Google) Earth #86
Excitement! After solving my first WoGE (#85, a river in southern Turkey), I’ve been accorded the honor of hosting the next installment. Ladies and gentlemen (and others – because I know at least a few geologists who definitely don’t fit those categories), for your viewing pleasure: The view is oblique to the North at about 4 km altitude; because it may turn out to be pretty easy for some people, …
