In All, Geo-Joint by The Maps.com Team0 Comments

There is no end of strange and bizarre terrain on the larger chunks of land surface on our planet.

Recently, the southern part of Louisiana experienced flooding of near-biblical proportions with some areas receiving over two feet of rain in three days.

If you were lucky, in mid-August you might have had clear skies for viewing the Perseid meteor shower. It was (reportedly) a good show this year, as Earth passed through a particularly rich field of comet tail debris thanks to Jupiter pulling the debris in closer than usual.

California isn’t the biggest state but it’s one of the longest, and it has the longest continuous stretch of interstate highway in the nation. Interstate 5 runs from the Mexican border to Oregon, almost 1,400 miles end-to-end.
