It was great to see Yami win WoGE#81 after a long hiatus. I ended up making fairly quick work of her old school map view of recent erosion through Pinatubo’s ashflows, but for some odd reason her blog didn’t seem to be registering my comment. But now that Lab Lemming has added his observations things seem to be back to normal and the comments are registering. At any rate, it was nice to take a few extra days off before posting this one.
I’ve got an interesting geologic feature lined up for this challenge, so I’m hoping to get a good explanation of the processes involved in forming the feature. I was tempted to zoom in even tighter, but I’m already down pretty close to the ground and I don’t want to make this too much of a needle in a haystack.
Despite Yami’s preferences for the good ol’ map view I’m going oblique again, to give a hint of the topography:
It looks like a lot of the old school WoGE champs are eager to get another win as the “Where on (Google) Earth?” series approaches its first birthday (January 18th). Nonetheless, I’ll dispense with the Schott Rule again, mainly because I’m zoomed in so tight. I suspect if it isn’t solved within the first 24 hours it’s gonna require a hint or two.
For the newbies: Identify the location of the feature (latitude and longitude will do) and describe the geology as best you can. We’re pulling for you!
Happy hunting and Happy New Year!!!
