More San Andreas Fault Photos…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort…about 20 miles east of Palm Springs, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 17th.


I first posted this info in December, 2010…


While working on yesterday’s Blog, I saw on the Internet where I could see more of the San Andreas Fault off of Dillon Rd, east of Indio, and about a 10 miles drive from my current location at Thousand Trails RV Resort in 1000 Palms, California. So off I went.

The first three photos are using Google Earth.

This first two photos show the relative location to Indio…




As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…









This third photo shows a closer view of the fault…






These next four photos were taken at the first rise on the dirt road leading into the fault…






It’s been fun getting up close and personal with the San Andreas Fault.


The following three links provide a lot of information about the fault in this, the Coachella Valley, area…

I hope you enjoyed the photos.


Recently I’ve been running blogs about my 2004 Central America trip. While here I’m intending to continue those postings while also alternating with other past blogs.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was sunny and 86 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 88 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of California. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…


On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

Yuma Crossing, Arizona

Jim says:

The Yuma Crossing has great history. For many, many years it was the focal point of the Southwest because for hundreds of miles north and south is was the only point at which the mighty Colorado River could be crossed. Modern man has made his mark. In the old days the river was about 1/4 mile wide. Today it’s about 250 feet.

The Yuma Crossing today as seen by Google Earth.
I took this photo of the original crossing area in the early morning. Interstate Highway 8 bridge is overhead.

Here’s a link to the history of the Yuma Crossing…

The Yuma Territorial Prison played an important role. Here’s an information link…

The Quartermaster depot supplied military establishments for more than 1,000 miles distant. Here’s an information link…
