Cold Springs Ranch: Zoom in on the Ranch from above

  Zoom in on the Ranch from above

I was reminded of these images yesterday by a fortunate encounter...

I looked out my office window yesterday morning (Thursday 2/28/02) and saw a man in an orange vest wondering my property. I went out to see what was up, and it was a USGS surveyor surveying our quadrangle! He was a really friendly guy and seemed as excited as I was to talk about everything I asked. I spent the next 45 minutes talking to him about the last 750 million years of geological history, including the formation and destruction of our mountains! I took him all over my property getting his analysis of the different rocks I had wondered about. It was very cool. It's not everyday a professional geologist walks into your yard!

Anyway, here are a series of aerial photos taken by the U.S. Geological Survey on April 13th, 1992. They show an increasingly closer view of the Ranch. These are pretty fun and I bet you will scroll them back an forth more than a few times! ....

Just in case you are not as intimately familiar with the layout of the Ranch as I am, and are wondering what in the world you are looking at. Here is the closest image with a few existing and future landmarks indicated. The Ranch has changed a little since 1992
