The lake Formation

 

Looking at a map, on all continents, you can see the lake. Some of them elongated, others rounded. Some lakes are located in mountainous areas, others on vast flat plains, some very deep and some very shallow. The shape and depth of the lake depend on the size of the basin which it occupies. Lake basins are formed by different ways.

Most of the major lakes of the globe is of tectonic origin. They are located in major deformations of the earth crust in the plains or fill the deep tectonic crack — rift (lake Baikal, Tanganyika, Nyasa, etc.).

Lake basins can become craters and calderas of extinct volcanoes, and sometimes depressions on the surface of lava flows. These lakes are called volcanic, are found, for example, on the Kuril and Japanese Islands, in Kamchatka, on the island of Java and in other volcanic regions of the Earth.

California is

 

Many people think that California – it is only the beaches. Probably blame the same American film industry that actively exploited species of Santa Monica and Malibu. Of course, beach volleyball, surfing and tan are the place to be, but this Golden state is not limited. Briefly saying “goodbye!” to the beaches, I went deep into the state, to admire the many other beauties of California. So, what I saw.

Hills

Silicon Valley, as befits a valley surrounded by hills. In winter, when it rains, the hills are dressed in green grass and make confusion in the immature minds of traveler, hinting at summer. In the summer, on the contrary, under the scorching California sun-the hills become Golden. At first I was terribly disappointed: how is it, summer, I want greenery, and around one scorched grass. Then I got used and even began to find in it a special charm. Gold hills in the background of a cloudless sky, cows, windmills – overall, there are not many present themselves California. A rural idyll.

Bonus: vineyards with wineries where not only beautiful, but also delicious – 90% of American wine comes from California. Look to NAPA valley, SONOMA, Livermore.
