Photographer's Note

A fellow TrekEarther (?) photographing the majestic mountains of Southern California - the San Jacinto and the San Bernardino mountains and the Coachella Valley in between. This is desert country folks, where the North America is tectonically active. These steep-walled mountain ranges formed great fractures in the Earth's crust along faults (like the San Andreas Fault). At these faults, movement occurs with people feeling earthquakes when most abrupt slips along faults occur.

Taken from Keys View near the summit of the Little San Bernardino Mountains in the Joshua Tree National Park. Don't really know if the photographer in the photograph is a fellow TrekEarther, but judging from the effort he did (scaling the steep incline to position himself), he might as well be.

Post processing included cropping, autocontrast and unsharp masking after resizing.
