Geology Tour Road:
Panoramic ViewIn this tour of the Queen and Pleasant Valley's, we've seen rock records dating back nearly two billion years. Mountain building over at least two separate and distinct periods, examples of different type of erosion and indication of how, and why man survived in the desert. With the active San Andreas fault to the south, and minor faults such as the Blue Cut, the scenery here is dynamic and subject to change -- Exactly how it will change though, can only be left to speculation.
