An example of the scarp, as seen in an oblique Google Earth image.
The scarp angles across the hill above the loop road near the center, and above the linear road to the left.
Images below are broken into two halves and shown with north to the right (first two images), and then with north up (second two images). These images enlarge fairly well, with the horizontal (north=right) images being best in enlargement and the vertical images (north=up) being best on the blog.
North half of the Fairview Peak strip with north to the right.
South half of the Fairview Peak strip with north to the right.
Two images: north and south half of the Fairview Peak strip with north up.
Can't really say why I did this. I was just fascinated by the fact that you can take Google Earth, rotate the eye view to oblique and — especially after a visit to the area (early December) — can easily identify the fault scarp(s) in most places.
