Above the San Andreas Fault, Salt Creek, and the Salton Sea, Riverside County, California
Aerial photograph of the San Andreas Fault (marked by 'SAF' notes), Salt Creek, and the Salton Sea, Riverside County, California. Bat Cave Buttes is in the bottom-center of image. All the land in this view was below the high-stand of ancient Lake Cahuilla, which began to recede about 320 years ago—also, everything in this view is below sea level. Along the shore of the Salton Sea, and east of Highway 111, is the Salton Sea State Recreation Area. View to the northwest.
