There's an earthquake fault at Gualala Point Regional Park.

Ken Browning recently led a geology hike at Gualala Point Regional Park. He showed us a small earthquake fault at the south end of the beach.

The fault is below the fence and wind-blown trees.

 Here's a closeup of the fault.
 Close by are these wonderful moon rocks. These formations are also at Salt Point State Park. I discuss these formations at this blog post: if you'd like to learn more. That is Diane Hichwa inspecting the formation.
 And I was struck by this rock's impersonation of a turtle. Hope you enjoy it.

If you'd like to learn more about this beautiful park, here's the link: There is a wonderful campground in this park on the east side of Highway 1 with campsites right along the Gualala River.
