Earthquake Fault / Mammoth Lakes & Eastern Yosemite Trip (July 20-24, 2009)
EARTHQUAKE FAULTLocated off Hwy. 203 on the way to Mammoth Mountain, this sizable fissure is not an earthquake fault caused by a single quake. Geologists now believe it is a system of fractures formed during a series of strong quakes when the Inyo Craters and Inyo Domes erupted centuries ago.
We walked all around this area during the evening. It was almost spooky! This is "nature" at its finest! Wow!
