Thalweg

Another neat and new-to-me geophysical word: Thalweg, from the German for "Valley Way" — the deepest continuous line in a valley. Besides forming borders between countries or other political entities, thalwegs are often good places to find streams with trails to run along. The "th" in the word is pronounced like a "t".
