Felix rang in the new year with a trip to the New Year Mine in Nevada.
Now, for WOGE 525, we leave the desert behind. Your task is to find the location of this image, as well as to post a comment with a description of the important geology, hydrology, or other -ology shown in the image.
To encourage first-time players, I would ask that any previous winners wait until at least 20:00 1/15/2016 UTC before posting (roughly 24 hours). Rules, hints, and a .kml file with previous WOGE locations can be found here.
