Geologists, anthropologists, and environmental scientists looking for classroom photos should click on the Geo-Images Project. The site's 10-and-counting collections let you take a photo tour of California's natural and humanmade environments, from dunes in Death Valley to a logged redwood forest. Or page through snapshots of daily life in Morocco and Afghanistan. These hoodoos from Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, rise up in the section on geomorphology.
