I found out that this is a range of extinct volcanoes. I'm not surprised because our area is covered in volcanic rock. Because we have very little earthquake activity in our area, it is assumed that these ancient volcanoes are dead. They have been estimated at only 3 thousand years old.
I went out to lunch with my mother and daughter this weekend. Took my Mom on a little tour of some of our parks that she didn't know existed. After lunch my daughter and I went to Target because I needed a few things. Ahhh, about $132.00 later I went home. Oh well, it was stuff I needed.
