Geo-RoadTrip 2014: Not Our Fault

We couldn't go to California without trying to get a good look at the famous San Andreas Fault.  And the best place we found is in Pelona Vista Park in Palmdale, CA.  It's a pretty decent uphill hike to get to the view but once you get there you can get a good look at some distortion and folding:

After we had our fill we had to head to holy ground: Vasquez Rocks!  What makes this place so special?

This is the location of the famous fight between Captain Kirk and the Gorn!  Check out Shatner in front of the same rocks swinging his Captain's Log:

Next up, we hit the Tar Pits!
