Bodie’s 193 earthquakes over 1.5 Magnitude This Week

46A4858-1-2.jpgimgmax1024
The shaking in Bodie continues! When I search the USGS site for earthquakes 1.5 and over, it shows 193 in the past week.

Apparently some windows have broken, some brick buildings have been damaged, so the park has been closed through Sunday so the damage can be assessed and buildings stabilized. The activity could last two months, so there is the possibility of strong aftershocks as well.

For photos of the historic town of Bodie, see my album with over 400:

Adam Ondra's Historic Free Climb of El Capitan

I was wondering who would be climbing El Capitan at night, but when you have a record to break, every minute is precious. I learned after my workshop last week that we had captured Adam Ondra on his record-breaking free climb of El Capitan on the night of November 15.

+Outside Magazine has the full story:
