Geography 5 photo journal final

  1. 1. Geography 5 Photo Journal<br />By Joe AlvarezFriday, 8:00am-9:20am class<br />
  2. 2. Cinder Hill<br />Cinder Hill is a basaltic volcano that is located in an area that was occupied by the Coso Indians hundreds of years ago. Although Cinder Hill is still active, it has not erupted in about 20,000 years.<br />
  3. 3. Lava Flows<br />
  4. 4. Stream Bed<br />Before the river in fossil falls became obsolete, the stream was a main source of lively hood for the Coso Indians.<br />
  5. 5. Fossil Falls<br />Fossil Falls was formed when near by lava flow met with the water from Owen's Lake, which uniquely shaped the rock and altered its original texture greatly.<br />
  6. 6. Metate Holes<br />Although, I was not able to get an extremely detailed picture of the metate holes, one is shown in the distance here.<br />
  7. 7. Obsidian Flakes<br />Obsidian Flakes were used to make arrowheads and knives by the Cosos among many other things.<br />
  8. 8. Petroglyph<br />
  9. 9. House Rings<br />The Rocks shown formed a house ring, which served as structure for housing of the semi nomadic Coso Indians.<br />
  10. 10. Mormon Rocks<br />
  11. 11. Granular Structure<br />The Mormon rocks are composed of several sedimentary layers.<br />
  12. 12. Stream Bed<br />The stream bed near Mormon rocks is where the river once flowed near the San Andreas fault.<br />
  13. 13. San Andreas Rift Zone<br />http://explorations.ucsd.edu/Voyager/Voyager_QA/2007/Nov/QA1/images/sanandreas.jpg<br />
  14. 14. Mt. Whitney<br />Mt. Whitney is a very jagged rock, made of granite. Although only 12 miles separate Mt. Whitney from the Inyo-Whites, it receives much more precipitation.<br />
  15. 15. Inyo-White Mountains<br />
  16. 16. Alluvial Fan<br />
  17. 17. Diaz Lake<br />
  18. 18. Lone Pine Fault<br />
  19. 19. Manzanar Plaque<br />
  20. 20. Manzanar Area<br />The picture that I chose to use in my photo journal for the Manzanar area was a structure built by Japanese Americans who were sent into the internment camp. What was interesting about the structure was that everyone who seemed to take part in building that particular section, signed or initialed the area.<br />
  21. 21. Mono Lake & Islands<br />The islands are being pointed at with a thick arrow and the lake surrounding it is shown by the thinner arrow.<br />
  22. 22. Former Shorelines<br />
  23. 23. Tufa<br />Tufa is a variety of limestone formed by precipitation.<br />
  24. 24. Hot Creek<br />Hot Creek in Bishop California, the most productive stream in the United States.<br />
  25. 25. Convict Lake<br />Convict Lake is a truly breathtaking area to see, which was created by a glacier.<br />
  26. 26. Lateral and Terminal Moraine<br />lateral<br />Terminal<br />
  27. 27. Oldest Rock Formations in the Sierras<br />
  28. 28. Owens River<br />The size of the Owens river has greatly diminished since the introduction of the Los Angeles water aqueduct of 1913.<br />
  29. 29. Owens River Benchmark<br />
  30. 30. Swallow’s Nest<br />
  31. 31. Inyo-White Mountains w/ Bristlecones<br />The spots shown are bristle cones<br />
  32. 32. Eastern California Mueseum<br />I chose this as my picture, because I found it extremely interesting. When I first saw this picture, the fact that thousands of Japanese peoples were interned against their own will in the United States became very real to me.<br />
