The Geologic Evolution of North America has been mapped out in great detail by Ron Blakey at Northern Arizona University. Matt Perry took the images and made a historically animated image (7.5 meg .gif file) so you can see the continent wiggle and fall apart and freeze and join up again through the eons. Fascinating stuff.

That's amazing. My favorite part of the evolution is when all the state boundary lines get etched into the continental crust.

I want to see the bit in 1625 when California turns into an island.
