Yesterday we went to the San Andreas Fault on an eco-tour by Desert Adventures. We saw the stars. We got to see the Altair Star (for those of you reading that are from the Altair School). It was a part of the Summer Triangle. We got to see a replica of an Indian village. There we saw an actual Indian arrowhead.
We went in a Jeep. Jeeps were built for World War II. This Jeep was built in 1980s there were only 28,000 made. It was a CJ-8 – C was for civilian, J for Jeep.
There are two different geologic plates at the San Andreas Fault. There is the North American Plate and the Pacific Plate. The North American Plate goes all the way to Iceland and the Pacific Plate goes all the way to Japan. They meet here at the San Andreas Fault, which is pretty cool. There are about 150-200 earthquakes a day. You only feel about 4 a year though.
The tour was cool. Mema gave us this tour for Christmas. Thanks Mema!
