San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth

We went in the afternoon to SAFOD (see title of entry) to troubleshoot a site, with the added benefit of getting to visit a place where they (scientists, drillers, etc. etc.) drilled down three kilometers next to and then angling into the San Andreas fault to pull out rock cores and to put in instruments. Quite and undertaking. Just a skeleton remains of what was out there two years ago when drilling was in full swing.

Cool pics. I hear they actually interested the two holes together when drilling the big hole. I take the small one is on the right.
