Morning on Sixth Street

You're looking east on Sixth Street, across from Dunne Park. See how the rock wall bends. That's the work of the Calaveras Fault. Amazing, huh?

This scene reminds me of the verse from the Simon & Garfunkel song, "Feeling Groovy":
Got no deeds to do, no promises to keep   
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep 
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me 
Life, I love you all is groovy
Happy Monday to you all!

Park Hill

View of Park Hill from Highway 25

What caused Park Hill to stick up above Hollister's valley floor? Have you ever wondered about that?

The Calaveras Fault skirts along the western base of the hill, so maybe it was pushed up by tectonic activity over millions of year. That's one theory of geologists.

Another theory is that Vista Hill somehow escaped being eroded away by whatever it was that wore down the terrain into a valley.

What do you think?
