Figure 3. At the El Paso Peaks paleoseismic site, a trench was dug through a small playa that is adjacent to the Garlock fault. The playa is bounded to the north by the El Paso Mountains and to the south by a shutter ridge, and is blocked from freely draining by a small alluvial fan. Note the drainage that has been left-laterally offset by the Garlock fault.
