Caption: Camera tilts up from Lake Sabrina to the towering Sierra Nevada mountains in California. Conceived in volcanism, transformed by seismic forces, and refined by glaciation, the granite peaks of these fault-block mountains rise as high as 4,460 meters and continue to grow higher as one tectonic plate slides past another causing earth-raising ruptures along the Sierra Nevada fault, a spur of the San Andreas.
