The calcified remains of animals around Lake Natron in Tanzania.

Oddly enough, this place is the nesting site of the East African Lesser Flamingo. About 2.5 million of the birds come to breed every year, and two species of fish live in the lake, which can reach 60 C.

Would you know of the Dogscape?

Quote
"...this was a city once, i think, though which one i can't remember. I only owe my guess to the massive pillars of dogs jutting into the sky, perhaps ancient buildings now completely filled and overgrown by canine biomatter. i climbed one once, sinking my fingers and toes deep into the dogwall to gain purchase, and after hours and hours of climbing was rewarded with an incredible vista - fur and eyes, panting tongues and wagging tails, hugging the contours of the once-barren land and stretching in a single aeomebic mass farther than the eye can see.

now i don't do that, though. now I merely go about my day. I hike to the Gardens, where the dogplants sprout up in bizarre shapes from the floor of the dogscape, and reach up to pluck the fetal puppyfruits right off the wagging, energetic branches. I bite into the succulent flesh, the juices dribbling down my chin and dripping down to be reabsorbed by the groundflesh, and revel in the savory taste. I'm thirsty, so i range until I find one of the Mothermounds, and there I suckle at a teatpatch until I've had my fill of milk. sometimes I see other humans around me, as well-adapted to the dogscape as I am, but i barely acknowledge them, say nothing. what, after all, is there to say? The world is different now - what meaning would our old words have?"

Posted this before somewhere but not on this thread. Couple of teen kids visiting a camp in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire stumble on an abandoned house that is still full of stuff, like the people just disappeared years before.

It is a little know fact when Miskatonic U folded in he seventies because of the high rate of student body deaths Harvard bought up most of their library.
