San Andreas Fault

This is one of the best places to take a look at how San Andreas Fault is changing the landscape. The North-American Plate is moving southward, and the Pacific Plate is moving northward, and this process is pushing up all the hills abound the area. The best time to view is in the morning and in the evening when the sun is low in the sky, and the shadows lay out the land very nicely.
