Volcanic Preserve

Today Charlene and I went over to the Oakland hills to visit the Robert Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve. Interesting place, although I'm still a little confused over the folding and twisting that lead to which bits of some ancient caldera being where. Sometimes I think geologists just make shit up to see how gullible people are, other times I can't imagine any other explanation making sense. If we do another visit, I think there'll need to be a little more background material first.

Driving up the Oakland hills was interesting too, especially in light of the current fires down in SoCal. A bunch of places where houses were built on steep hills directly above large eucalyptus groves, leading me to wonder what insurance company would possibly not laugh those folks out of town.

Oh yeah, the picture is Mount Diablo.
