Going to an interesting Playa

Post by AlaskaIsCold » Thu Aug 29, 2019 10:52 pm

Hey everyone!

In my attempts to always find something new, something that human eyes either have never seen, or haven't seen in a very very long time, I stumbled upon a rather interesting tiny little playa that looks like its nestled in a depression between a split ridge line? I always have the want to name things after people that were influential in my life (having never found anything new this of course makes it difficult). I figure ill go up to this spot in lake November early December.

I think this is very a interesting because it straddles not only two different fault lines but it also straddles two different geological beds with a third near by.

While searching maps I've always seen playas in various locations. They are interesting.

I know right?
I happen to like this one the most because its in the middle of a split ridge line, and its bordered by two faults and two different geological beds. Its very exciting!
