Second Google Earth lesson - no matter how much you know, there are vast places in the world that you know nothing about. This is not just things in distant foreign countries, this is stuff virtually right in your backyard.

Note: None of these pictures are mine.

Also, My Backyard Is Enormous )

Of course, no matter how good it is, this is still California. The state that brought you Half Dome and Mount Whitney and Yosemite and Monterrey and Sequoia National Park. In a place like CA there's always something that gets forgotten about. But it's there. It's right there. And it's big. It's bold. It's amazing. And it's a hell of a lot closer than Disneyland.

But don't tell anyone. The less who know, probably the better.

Part of my job involves spending a lot of time looking at maps, so I spend a lot of time with both Google Maps and Google Earth. Google Earth in particular I find fascinating, it serves not only as a valuable tool for navigation, but as sort of a window on the world. Despite my skepticism about new technology, I've learned a lot from that window on the world, without even having to pay for the plane tickets.

Lesson One: All That 'It's a Beautiful Country' Stuff is Bullshit )
