Coachella Valley Preserve And The San Andreas Fault

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.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort…about 20 miles east of Palm Springs, California. I’ll depart here December 21st.

 

 

I’ve been coming to this area for many years. This blog posting has been previously published.

 

 

In 2010, 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.

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…

Painted Canyon Sits Atop San Andreas Fault

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.

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 January, 2011…

 

In 2011, Mary and I visited Painted Canyon which sits atop of the San Andreas Fault. It’s located about 10 miles northeast of Mecca, California near the northern end of the Salton sea and about 30 to the southeast of our current location at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Thousand Palms, California.

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was in the mid-70′s with an overcast sky…perfect for picture-taking. It’s so pretty here, that it is nearly impossible to take a bad photograph.

 

 

 

 

Here are 10 photos from our excursion…

The area is also known as the Mecca Hills Wilderness Area. Here’s a Wikipedia informational link…
