New Pics

Below is a waterfall in Yosemite that when the sun hits it as it is setting, turns the waterfall "on fire".

Below is a picture of Pangea (300 million years ago) before the tectonic plates started shifting the continents to where they are today.  Pretty cool.  it was surrounded by a world-spanning ocean called Panthalassa.  Plates can move as much as one inch per year.  When you realize that California and Australia are 7,500 miles apart today...that is a long time period!  Also, take a look at where Brazil is and to the right is Nigeria.  When looking at a world map, those continents are 4000 miles apart today.
