California Earth Quake Trail
Today I was enjoying the sun and cruising around to Point Reyes (Northern California).
I stopped at the Point Reyes Visistor center and checked out the Earth Quake Trail. The trail is not very interesting except for this fence that used to run straight across the San Andeas Fault. During the infamous 1906 Earth Quake in San Francisco, the San Andreas Fault ruptured here and parts of Point Reyes moved up to 20 feet north. It's hard to imagine the power that must have been unleashed.
If you are in the area (near San Francisco) and possibly on a drive up north on Highway 1, make a short detour. The fence is located at these GPS coordinates:
N38 02.391 W122 47.839

On the trail (a 5 minute walk) we also encountered some baby deer:
