Wadi El-Hitan (Whale Valley)
These are georeferenced photos of a day trip from Cairo to Wadi El-Hitan, Whale Valley, a brand new UNESCO World Heritage site that just this year got a road and infrastructure.

The site contains around 400 fossilized skeletons of 40 million-year old whales, some of which had hind legs, as these mammals were still in the process of migrating back into the sea. This makes Wadi El-Hitan one of the world's most important sites for palaeontologists, as it provides evidence of a typical missing link, the kind that creationists argue can't exist.
