A lot of us like walking in the forest for the sheer simplicity and beauty of it; the peacefulness of the air, the smell of the wood and flowers, the colors and shapes of the various fungi. Yet we also yearn for something unusual in our lives – something removed from the mundane of our favorite forest trolls.

The San Andreas Fault

 

The Fault is a dividing line that separates one part of California that is sliding northward from the other part that is sliding southward.
