Where on Google Earth #510

Felix showed us a very classic location that has until now been overlooked in WoGE, the Isola Vulcano in the Liparian Islands.

Since I found it very quickly and I finally have time to find a new location, here is WoGE #510:

As always, the first person to post the position and whatever is interesting about the geology/hydrology/geowhatever in this location, wins the privilege of hosting the next WoGE.

Previous WoGEs are collected by Felix on his blog and a KML file.

  1. -19.004°, -65.235° Cal Orck'o, Bolivia.

    "Spectacular fossil tracks have been discovered high in the Andes in Bolivia. These tracks were made near the end of the Cretaceous Period around 66 million years ago. Since then, geologic forces have tilted the track beds, forming a steeply angled wall. Workers in a cement quarry discovered the site in 1994, and now over 5,000 dinosaur tracks have been found in what is now Parque Cretácico in Cal Orck'o. The site includes tracks made by ankylosaurs, armored herbivorous dinosaurs that walked around like prehistoric tanks."

    This is a really nice location. looks strange as a satellite view. The pictures on the ground are astonishing.

  2. Well done, Felix! I had to rotate the view a little to avoid having most of Sucre city in the view. One of the things that makes this location so spectacular is that it is very close to a major city and thus easily accessible to the public.
