Feeling thankful it’s Friday. The week has been an energy suck and I’m looking forward to taking the weekend to reset 🧡
This was just one of those amazing places 👌🏽🔶💥Throwback from @nuroma7 ‘s Birthday in May.
☀️ Desert weekend ☀️

In my purely hobbyist venture to catalog the accessible and visible morphology, structure, limited petrology, and human interaction of the San Andreas Fault and vicinity, I stopped at Mecca Hills. Through incision by storm run-off gullies, two or three separate units of fault gouge can be seen actively commingling; The "red clay gouge" (remnant of mudstone beds) on the right, and the "Palm springs" formation (arkose & conglomerate) on the left, and perhaps the gneissic basement rocks that underlie the region. Emphasis here is on the color change, which is evidence of holocene shear/fault slip, and inline with the greater shear trend. Location is just 360 yards off Box Canyon Road. Now that I can do slightly better than subsisting on ramen noodles, I intend to revisit this place with better camera gear. ----- Disclaimer: I am a geologist but work in an unrelated field; thus, correction and discussion is welcome and encouraged.

Recordando mi viaje de aventura en mi hermosa California. Ya me hace falta otro viajecito así 💕 #adventurer #laddercanyon #meccahills #explorer #outdoors
Searching for the #SanAndreasFault in #MeccaHills . This is the entrance to #PaintedCanyon and #LadderCanyons which were created by the fault line. What are the chances the #BigOne would happen during our visit? #earthquakecountry #dangerwillrobinson #destinations #desertliving #wanderlust #meditation #spiritualspaces #newadventures #hiking #pathnottaken

Uniquely faulted and folded geologic formations are the result of activity on the local sections of the San Andreas Fault, making the Mecca Hills one of the more unusual geological sites of this kind.. This is as down to earth I can get .. hehe get it? #sanandreasfault #paintedcanyon #hiking #california #meccahills #almostdied #rockclimb #chargers #earthquakezone #saltonsea ⛰ 🧗🏽‍♀️ ☀️ @jessicaa___mejia
I found myself in a maze this morning which seemed to extend a mile in every direction. There were so many pathways, made by rainwater, through the mostly sandstone and dried mud hills. I spotted this little formation, which I have more photos of, and climbed up 10 or 15 feet to snap some shots up close. It wasn't the most comfortable place to be though. It served as my reward for shimmying through narrow slot canyons and exploring all of the dry waterfalls this morning. . #desertmountains_meccahills . . . #take_magazine #imaginarymagnitude #oksfieldmag #gominimalmag #stademagazine #lightzine #solarcollective #oftheafternoon #ifyouleave #somewheremagazine #broadmag #onbooooooom #rentalmag #ourmomentum #ourmag #lekkerzine #weltraumzine #midnightsafari #dreamermagazine #indiependentmag #hippomag #taintedmag #photozine #phroommagazine #paperjournalmag #meccahills #westbysouthwest #desertart #weltraumzine

Beautiful hike with amazing views. Mecca Hill. #meccahills #paintedcanyon #hiking #rockclimbing #california
I have not been camping in a long time. I have acquired everything needed pretty much to "bikepack" and carry the equipment on my mountain bike. Super light tent, sleeping bag and pad, a lot of bags to strap on the bike and the ability to carry plenty of water. Hopefully I will have time soon to take a little ride from my front door to a rugged dirt canyon road and ascend into Joshua Tree NP. It would be a great one night trip, around 60 miles or 96 km. This was taken in the Mecca Hills, a vast expanse of dried mud hills that sit in between Joshua Tree and the Salton Sea. Before the bats came out.

Вчера, посмотрев прогноз погоды, мы решили сбежать от низких и серых туч в Мекку! Да! Да! В самую настоящую Мекку, только Калифорнийскую! А знаменита она своими потрясающими каньонами! До перевала полчаса езды и там уже бессменно светит и пригревает солнышко, ибо начинается одна из многочисленных калифорнийский пустынь! Но нам ехать в Мекку, а это в два раза дальше! Но впечатления того заслуживают!!! Мы пережили массу экстрима и восторга! Место не для слабонервных и не для слабо физически подготовленных! Ну вот, а сегодня у нас на побережье погода снова устаканилась и мы в тепле и под ясным и комфортным солнышком! #iphonephoto #iphone8plus #iphone8plusphoto #shotoniphone8 #shotoniphone8plus #shotoniphone #калифорния #закат #sunset #caligrammers #caligrammer #californiasunset #caligram #mountaincalifornia #californiamountains #meccacanyon #meccahills
Exploring Painted Canyons in Mecca Hills 🏜️

Go climbing #meccahills
Yesterday in celebration of @nuroma7 birthday, we went on the most amazing hike through a slot canyon. It was my first time experiencing something like this and it was mind-blowing beautiful! We ascended and descended throughout the canyon and climbed to a fantastic overlook of the Salton Sea and surrounding Mecca Hills. From our vantage point there were many more trails snaking through the mountains and canyons. From there we ascended into Painted Canyon and were in awe of the way the water carved out the canyon walls and the medley of soft-desert hues. I am so happy for all the adventures we have had together and the many more to come! Happy Birthday my love @nuroma7 🖤🖤🖤
