I don’t always poke around Oakland’s innards, its rocks and landforms and geologic history. Most of the time, I actually just enjoy the place.
Geography is what geology, climate, history and culture all add up to. Round Top and the ancient volcano it embodies, the hills and the sea air riding up their flanks are merely the stage for Oakland’s beautiful humanity. It is a magnificent arena, where you can see people from every part of the world in one place.
I seem to have caught up with my long backlog of photos and topics. It’s time to get outside again. What questions about Oakland’s geology are on your minds?
