SIO Pier.  The Scripps Institution of Oceanography research pier is 1090 feet long and was built of reinforced concrete in 1988, replacing the original wooden pier built in 1915. The Scripps Pier is home to a variety of sensing equipment above and below water that collects various oceanographic data. The Scripps research diving facility is located at the foot of the pier. Fresh seawater is pumped from the pier to the many tanks and facilities of SIO, including the Birch Aquarium. The Scripps Pier is named in honor of Ellen Browning Scripps, the most significant donor and benefactor of the Institution, La Jolla, California Dendronotus iris swimming nudibranch, Browning Pass, Vancouver Island, Dendronotus iris Chocolate lily growing among grasses on oak-covered hillsides. The chocolate lily is a herbaceous perennial monocot that is increasingly difficult to find in the wild due to habitat loss. The flower is a striking brown color akin to the color of chocolate, Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve, Murrieta, California Red Nudibranch, Dendronotus rufus, Browning Pass, Vancouver Island, Dendronotus rufus Mono Lake sunset, tufa and clouds reflected in the still waters of Mono Lake Blue whale and San Onofre Nuclear Power generating station, raising fluke prior to diving for food, fluking up, lifting its tail as it swims in the open ocean foraging for food, Balaenoptera musculus, Dana Point, California Radio telescope antenna, part of the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA). The Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) is a system of ten radio telescopes which are operated remotely from their Array Operations Center located in Socorro, New Mexico, as a part of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO). These ten radio antennas work together as an array that forms the longest system in the world that uses very long baseline interferometry, Big Pine, California Humpnose Bigeye Bream, Monotaxis grandoculis, Fiji, Makogai Island, Lomaiviti Archipelago Honolua Bay in West Maui with Molokai in the distance, Maui, Hawaii Conjuction of Saturn and Jupiter over Scripps Institution of Oceanography Research Pier at sunset, with Christmas Lights and Christmas Tree, La Jolla, California California sea lion with scar around neck from monofiliment fishing line entanglement, Zalophus californianus, Sea of Cortez Spotted Leopard Dorid, Diaulula odonoghuei, Vancouver Island, Diaulula odonoghuei Perseid Meteor Shower over Arch Rock, Joshua Tree National Park, Aug 13, 2014 Palomar Observatory at Night under the Milky Way, Panoramic photograph, Palomar Mountain, California Brown pelican, entangled in monofilament fishing line, showing winter mating plumage colors, Pelecanus occidentalis, Pelecanus occidentalis californicus, La Jolla, California Parry's Nolina, or Giant Nolina, a flowering plant native to southern California and Arizona founds in deserts and mountains to 6200'.

The Arc de Triomphe (Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile) is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Etoile), at the western end of the Champs-Elysees. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: "Triumphal Arch") honors those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I. The monument was designed by Jean Chalgrin in 1806, and its iconographic program pitted heroically nude French youths against bearded Germanic warriors in chain mail. It set the tone for public monuments, with triumphant patriotic messages. The monument stands 50 metres (164 ft) in height, 45 m (148 ft) wide and 22 m (72 ft) deep Arch Rock, Venus and Milky Way at Astronomical Twilight, Morning approaching, Joshua Tree National Park Perseid Meteor Shower over Joshua Tree National Park, Aug 13, 2014 California sea lion, with monofiliment cut, Zalophus californianus, Monterey Honolua Bay in West Maui with Molokai in the distance, Maui, Hawaii Plectorhinchus chaetodonoides, Many-spotted sweetlips, Fiji, Plectorhinchus chaetodonoides, Bligh Waters Dendronotus iris swimming nudibranch, Browning Pass, Vancouver Island, Dendronotus iris Sunset on Terra Mar and the Carlsbad coastline, looking north to Oceanside, Camp Pendleton and San Onofre Monofiliment Fishing Net Covers Hard Coral, Isla Espiritu Santo, Sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico Chocolate lily growing among grasses on oak-covered hillsides.

Erratics are huge boulders left behind by the passing of glaciers which carved the granite surroundings into their present-day form.  When the glaciers melt, any boulders and other geologic material that it was carrying are left in place, sometimes many miles from their original location, Yosemite National Park, California Flameback angelfish, Centropyge aurantonotus Fern Springs, a small natural spring in Yosemite Valley near the Pohono Bridge, trickles quietly over rocks as it flows into the Merced River, Yosemite National Park, California Fern Springs, a small natural spring in Yosemite Valley near the Pohono Bridge, trickles quietly over rocks as it flows into the Merced River. Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California Cardon cactus, near La Paz, Baja California, Mexico.  Known as the elephant cactus or Mexican giant cactus, cardon is largest cactus in the world and is endemic to the deserts of the Baja California peninsula.  Some specimens of cardon have been measured over 21m (70) high.  These slow-growing plants live up to 300 years and can weigh 25 tons.  Cardon is often mistaken for the superficially similar saguaro of Arizona and Sonora, but the saguaro does not occupy Baja California, Pachycereus pringlei Simnia and egg cluster on gorgonian, Delonovolva aequalis, Anacapa Island The South Fork of the Kings River flows through Kings Canyon National Park, in the southeastern Sierra mountain range.

Clouds Rest is one of the most massive -- if not the singlemost massive -- granite monoliths in the world.
