A few days ago I got to learn about the Stikine terrane, its beautiful folded rocks, and its potential fossil fuel reserves during the course of searching and winning the 201st edition of Where on Google Earth. Now it’s my turn to maybe inspire someone to learn about a new piece of the Earth’s surface as I get to host the 202nd edition of this geoblogospheric scavenger hunt.
For those that haven’t played before, here’s a quick overview of the rules. First one to correctly identify the latitude and longitude of the center of the image AND say something about what makes this area geologically interesting…wins. The prize is getting to pick the next WoGE location and hosting it on your blog or picking a geoblogger to host it for you. If you’ve won WoGE in the past, you have to wait one hour before submitting your answer for each of your previous wins (the Schott Rule).
I think that this image will be fairly easy to identify, so I’ve made it a wee bit harder by cropping off the scale bar. Good luck and happy hunting.
