A great place to view an active fault creep, right in the middle of Fremont. You can also see my geo-mobile parked right on the fault as well.

Possibly one of the most famous fault offsets in the world. It's amazing that people live literally, not figuratively right above an active fault. Given a few years, the damage and offset of the fault can be seen. These houses won't last much longer.
