Sag Ponds on the San Andreas Fault Earthcache

12:27 pm - Woo hoo, my first earthcache!

It was great to be back in Los Trancos Poison Oak Preserve, especially when all the new buds were sprouting.

I took what appeared to be the best trail and almost took it all the way to the posted coordinates. I was 99% sure I was going the wrong way so I decided to explore a deer trail to see if I could correct things. It popped me out right on the faultline.

Every time I walked by one of those yellow markers I got a little nervous. Add this to the list of places I don't want to be during a major earthquake.

I found the bolt and continued on the trail, in the wrong direction of course. I soon fixed that returned all the way back the same trail that I came in on.

Thanks for the education! Posted by jeff at February 13, 2005 12:27 PM
