Plate Techtonics

San Andreas Fault, California

The San Andreas fault is a massive transform boundary.

In San Andreas, there is not much to do, theres a musuem and you could also go on a desert/nature tour. I would not suggest going there if your looking for a fun trip.

The San Andreas fault has had some notable earthquakes, scientists believe that there will be a huge earthquake soon to come from the San Andreas fault.
