  3. 3. Cinder Hill is a large cinder cone volcano. It is between the Sierra Nevada and the Inyo-White Mountains. The volcano looks a reddish color because it is basaltic.
  4. 4. This picture shows hardened Lava Flow on a field, showing how the lava traveled.
  5. 5. Owens River Stream bed Taken by Rocio Villarreal
  6. 6. Fossil Falls is a waterfall that is connected to the Owens River, which was the product of melted glaciers coming from the Sierra Nevada Mts. The waterfall was created when the river traveled through the lava forming its unique look.
  7. 7. Metate Holes were created by pebbles flowing in the current and getting stuck in the basalt. They would swirl around creating the holes.
  8. 8. An Obsidian Flake is a piece of black glass that was used by Native American to make tools and weapons like arrowheads.
  9. 9. The Petroglyph, a prehistoric rock carving, was made thousands of years ago by Native Americans. It is believed to describe a hunting scene.
  10. 10. House Rings are rocks that are placed on the ground to form a circle. This circle is a base to their house. Native Americans usually stayed in this flat dry area during winter.
  11. 11. Mormon Rocks Formation is a sedimentary rock which is many pieces of rocks put together. It is evidence that the San Andreas fault runs under it causing the rocks to rise up.
  12. 12. The Granular Structure of Mormon rocks feels rough almost like sand paper. Its layers show a perfect record of weather including years with lots of rain and drought years.
  13. 13. This picture shows both a Stream bed and the San Andreas rift zone.
