Yesterday Mary and I visited the Coachella Valley Preserve which sits atop the San Andreas Fault. In case you are not aware, it is the best known earthquake fault in California. It passes through the Coachella Valley Preserve which is also a National Wildlife Preserve. It is also known as 1000 Palms Canyon.
It’s only a 10 minute drive or 7.5 miles distant. It’s only about 5 miles the way the crow flies…supposedly in a straight line from our current location at Thousand Trails RV Resort. We took a 2 mile walk through the preserve
Here are six photos that I took…
