Where on Google Earth #265

After correctly but illegally identifying Ole's hellish Afar Triangle in WoGE #264 over at And The Water Seems Inviting, I hereby give you number 265 in this long-running geoscience quiz game started by Clastic Detritus

Where on Google Earth is the best use of a computer and some spare time since SETI@home. If you are new to the game, it is easy to play. The winner is the first person to examine the picture below, find the location (name, link, or lat-long), and give a brief explanation of its geological interest. Please post your answer in the comments below. And thanks to the Schott Rule, which I am invoking, newbies have a slight edge: previous winners must wait one hour for each previous win before playing.

So: where and what on Google earth is this? [Posted at 1303 GMT]
