Tectonic Plate Gap Between Europe & America.The gap is widening by one inch a year. The area - near Iceland - is riddled with faults, valleys, volcanoes and hot springs, caused by the plates pulling apart.
One of my favorite places! Crater Lake National Park, OR. A must see during any season- snow shoe around the rim of the crater while there is snow out, backpack along the Pacific Crest Trail during the summer.
Another science fair idea: Make rainbow roses by splitting the stems into strands and placing each one in food coloring. The roses draw the food coloring into the petals.Hmmm not a bad idea for Amarah's Science Fair Project!
