Volcanic Activity...AND Earthquakes???!!!

Not far from the area affected by the volcanic carbon dioxide gases is another point of interest to visit...
the Mammoth Earthquake Fault...
Yep...while contemplating the possibilities of volcanic eruption, a visitor to Mammoth can go just a few miles away and visit the site of an Earthquake Fault!!!  

God's Country comes is not without it's challenges...


  1. That first one is truly stunning when you think about what caused it to look that way. Cool shots, Chieftess.

  2. Thanks Laurie!!! It was really eerie walking along there, especially because Mammoth does experience a lot of tremors up here...Our landlady told us we'd be straightening pictures regularly while up here, due to the frequent tremors!!!

  3. I'm always fascinated by cracks in the ground. Nice set of pictures showing these off.
