Parents and Teachers: Please note we are making some internal changes to the site. As a result, the Great American Multiplication Challenge, Spellerz!, Burnside's Billions and couple of other games will not show statistics or return save codes for the next few days. They will be playable, but no data will be saved. They should be fully functional again by the end of the week. As always, please support this site by following me on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.

What is an Example of a Fjord?

 
Sognefjord (pictured), located in southern Norway is the world’s second longest fjord. Only Scoresby Sound in Greenland is longer. Sognefjord extends inland some 126 miles to the town of Skjolden. For most of its length, the fjord is about three miles wide. Cliffs on either side of the fjord rise to heights of nearly 3,000 feet.
