Geology of the Sierra's
« on: October 10, 2013, 04:40:29 PM »
Found a interesting book (more so after a few beers) titled "Geologic Trips Sierra Nevada", Ted Konigsmark...ISBN 0- 9661316-5-7 that describes

the geology of the Sierras including the Long Valley volcano that contributed to the physical structure of the Owens Valley. The caldera (yeah, I

googled that word) is still volcanically active and providing heat for the hot springs and hot creeks.
