Mammoth from Space

NASA just released a fantastic high-res image of Earth from space, and it happens to include a cloud-free view of our little area of California! You can clearly see the trough or depression in the mountains that creates a perfect funnel for storms (well, most years). The Long Valley Caldera is also easy to spot. […]
