Post-SSA Week Geology Challenge Numero Dos!

All right. So I saw people blogging into the wee hours of today and thought the SSA Week challenge lasted all day. I was wrong. It lasted until yesterday. So our SSA Week Geology Challenge has now become our Post-SSA Week Geology Challenge. Which is completely okay, because there’s still a $250,000 matching donation offer going on, through the end of the year, and that means that when you help me get to $50, you’re really helping me get to $100. Plus, whatever you decide to donate yourself doubles.

Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.

So here’s how this works: I’ll post a picture of some nummy geology, and ask you to identify it. Be first person who can identify the location or the feature (depending on whether the picture’s of a locale generally or a specific geologic feature), and I donate $10 to the Secular Student Alliance in your honor. Cynthia won the first challenge, which went up on G+. We’ve got four left!

All right, here’s our first. It’s a famous locale, so I’m only going to give you a tiny bit of it. This is supposed to be challenging, right?

For this one, I want to know where it is, and what formed it. If we don’t have a winner by 2pm Pacific, I’ll start posting hints in the comments, but I think this one’s going to be a cake walk for most of you.

Okay? Go!


For those who wish to donate themselves, the button still works fine:

      You got it! $10 for SSA in Ron Schott’s honor!

      Stay tuned for the next challenge…
