Columbia grain


A different take on this picture

Jake by the Columbia. You know a cool section of geology with a great name? The Straight of Juan de Fuca. I guess there's also a tectonic plate named Juan de Fuca. HOLY COW! Via Wikipedia, Juan de Fuca's real name was Ioánnis Fokás and he was a greek working for the Spanish. Man, that's kind of a rip-off for him. Like if I discovered a moon and they called it Luna Juan.

Obviously reading up on my plate tectonics. Feel bad for Japan, but at least they were prepared! When the big one hits here, we're totally screwed.

Juan De Fuca was also known as "Apostolos Valerianos of Cephalonia". That dude had quite a string of aliases.
