Today's walk report: 070419

Happy 4th of July!



But before I get to that, here are some photos...

Bee on buckwheat.
Bush sunflower.

This is Eremophila nivea. There are two of these, they are relatively new additions to the garden. It's a stunning plant. I'd love to have one at home.

No ID.
Sylvilagus audubonii.
Zen bunny.
We were sitting on a bench by the fountain (if you happen to know where the fountain is). I asked Docken if she was shaking the bench and she replied, I was going to ask you that. Then we both exclaimed... EARTHQUAKE! Here's all the pertinent data...

Magnitude 6.4 - 12km SW of Searles Valley, CA. That's about 115 miles NE of where we were sitting. 10:33 A.M. 35.705°N 117.508°W. 5.4 miles or 8.7 km depth. It was a long rolling quake. It was disorienting. Our first thought was to head home and see how the cats were. The cats were fine, thank you.

Here's the fountain, still showing some ripples and a bubble that rose up.

Here's a map.

  1. Hmm. We didn't even feel it. But then we're about 50 miles further south than you are.
