That is one of the questions at hand - there is very little information - that I have found - so far - I am just beginning. I do not think this is small - I see a dome - I also see what appears to be a caldera wall - investigation ongoing

On a side note, did you see all the unique dirt drawing's in the caldera of the volcano, interesting...


Just noticed them now you pointed them out, can't really make anything out of them apart from a stick man wearing a pointy hat lol It could be anything from kids to ancient symbols ala nazca lines!

Anne what do you mean by caldera wall ?

Yeah hard to make out, trying for a google earth shot, but not having much luck, perhap's if we could rotate the map, can't get zoomed in enough, maybe just local graffiti...

I will have to do google earth tomorrow on high speed - i think i am going to move to somewhere with high speed!!!!!

in the pictures that I have been able to see here tonight since this all sank in, we see a dome - look at the back round - the ridge?? - As stated on what little we have so far, this is the only area that the Fault line raises above the soil - why - we have an major intersection i think - thought that just crossed my mind - did this old caldera create the fault??? - hmmm, now this is interesting - - hmmmm - wonder if USGS will add this to their list?

Just done some research on El Pinacate, it's extinct so nothing to worry about looks like a nice place to visit though


VOLCANO FIELD

The park's chief attraction is its bizarre and mind-boggling scenery. About 3 or 4 million years ago, an erratic series of volcanoes erupted in what is now the Pinacate lava field. Hundreds of blank cinder cones and craters mark the surface. You can visit some of the largest, including El Elegante, from the park entrance off Highway 2.

The largest crater, El Elegante, is also the most visited. It takes a two to three-hour hike to reach the crater, and the path is well-marked. There, the view is simply awesome. The crater is 1,400 meters (4,600 feet) from rim to rim and 140 meters (460 feet) deep.

There are also places in the reserve where it hasn't rained for years. The park's dune fields can be accessed via Highway 8 and a 4 kilometer (2.5 mile) dirt road the heads west near the Kilometer 73 marker.


DESTINATION MOON

Some of these lava fields were used to train U.S. astronauts heading to the moon during the Apollo space program.

If something vents, smolders, shivers and quakes - it is not extinct - just like Toba -

Oh my, I have just has a "Really Big Thought" kinda hard to wrap my brain around - but I think I can. Now, please anyone just jump right in here a dispel this thought because it is big.... Here goes.... So here we have what appears to be a Caldera - which appears at this point could be pretty huge.... So, we have this Caldera/Volcano at the base of the San Andreas Fault Line....Which could have help to create such line, which, has shown major signs of activity...big swarm in 2008 (which is micro compared to right now). What was the year that the scientists starting going on about the San Andreas Fault being over do for a large quake? When did the start saying it was imminent?? - - Why???? -- - I think we now have our answer!!!! And with that said - How long will it take them to pull the red squares of the maps???? or, are they finally giving us a clue?????

and here is our quake list updated from 2 + hours ago

Santa Barbra channel completely new??? and yes i think your assumption is now heading in the correct direction, but that just means they speculated first,,because they had DATA.,,, now what??

Some relatives of mine sent me some great pictures of the earthquake. I thought I'd share them with everyone.

Check out some amazing images.

Doing a little research

found this article



The residents of Ejido Oaxaca, located south of the Cerro Prieto geothermal fields, spoke of volcanoes of water that erupted on their streets and inside their homes. The area is one of intense seismic activity, but most of the quakes have been small, and no one expected one of such magnitude. As the earth shook Sunday, the water gushed through cracks in geysers of warm, rust-colored water.

BobAthome, I have figured out a long time ago - and try to remind myself everyday over and over - Do not dwell on things that are inevitable or that can not be changed by you. Do your best with what you have and what cirounds you. Give what you can without wanting. Always be prepared for anything and I can't remember the whole saying now because my pillow is calling me - - oh thank you google - here you go --- Grant to us the serenity of mind to accept that which cannot be changed; courage to change that which can be changed, and wisdom to know the one from the other. --- I think there is more to that - but that is not on my mind at the moment - oh, and don't forget - prepare for the worse - you know the list
