|This is an odd formation on the Amazon river, it looks as though the river has started to form a lake in the jungle. The 'lake' is deceivingly big, being 60 x 11 miles approx. The pattern that the water forms in the trees is interesting, somewhat like veins.||08/05/2005||544|

|The snakelike body of a river does not actually stay forever. In fact its bends will someday meet each other and form a shortcut at first (4°37'08.00"S 65°34'49.00"W, best viewed at alt of 3miles. Then after a few given times (could be decades), sedimentation will block the older path and form an oxbow lake (4°37'07.00"S 65°34'01.00"W). And then, after a few more decades thi...||07/04/2007||1,668|
