Mormon Rocks 1. The Mormon Rocks were formed by the San Andreas Fault. They were named after being the Mormon Settlers migration location.
Mormon Rocks 2. The Mormon Rocks are composed of a variety of sediments and layers of rocks which had a great amount of perception, which came about when water used to run from the Stream Bed and San Andreas Rift.
Mormon Rocks 3. This Cajon pass is located between the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains.
Mormon Rocks 3. The Cajon used to have a stream of water run through it.
Cinder Hill 1. Cinder Hill is a basaltic cinder cone, in the Coso Volcanic field.
Cinder Hill 2. Lava Flows are made of hardened basaltic lava.
Fossil Falls 1. The Stream Bed is Owens Riverbed.
Fossil Falls 2. Fossil Falls was formed by melted water from glaciers. This melted water flowed through a river, which then flowed over the lava flow. This caused the basalt to be smooth.
Fossil Falls 3. Metate Holes were formed from pieces of debri that would drill into the basalt.
Fossil Falls 4. Obsidian Flakes were made by Native Americans who. They used these flakes as tools or weapons.
Fossil Falls 5. Petroglyphs were made by Native Americans and they were created to illustrate stories or guide people.

Diaz Lake 1. Diaz Lake was created when the shifts of the tectonic plates from the Lone Pine Fault. The ground was created from earthquakes, which made it uneven and settled water in the low points of the area.
Diaz Lake 2. The Earthquake of 1872 caused 29 deaths and an enormous amount of destruction to local towns.
Manzanar 1. Manzanar was 1 out of 10 locations where many Japanese Americans were imprisoned during World War II. These camps were created to seclude all Japanese Americans, in fear of any future attacks against The United States.
Manzanar 2. This is the actual site of the foundations of the homes of the Japanese, that were secluded in this area.
Mono Lake 1. The Island of Neget and Pehoa are both volcanos and are located on the Mono Lake.
Mono Lake 2. The Former Shoreline is hundreds of feet away from the current shoreline. The Former Shoreline is from 1963.
Mono Lake 2. The Current Shorelines were caused from receding waters from the Los Angeles Aqueduct.
Mono Lake 3. The Tufa was created formed from underground freshwater springs that entered the lake. Tufas expand from under the surface.
Panum Crater 1. The Burns were caused from a wildfire in 1981.
Convict Lake 1. Convict Lake was created from glaciers.
Convict Lake 2. Lateral Moraines are cause from glacial settlement.
Convict Lake 3. The Oldest Rock Formation has roof pendants and has terminal moraine, to its right.
Eastern California Museum 1. The artifact that interested me the most, was the miniature cradleboards. These cradleboards were made as toys for young Indian children. They were also made to be sold to tourists. They were made with an enormous amount of detail. The pattern of the hood would indicate if it was a girls or boys cradleboard.
