Paul Remeika and the Edge of Creation at Anza-Borrego

July 6th, 2008

A Career Exploring the Desert

Tommy Hough and Treehuggers International recently had the chance to connect with and interview author, retired California State Parks ranger, and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park paleontology expert Paul Remeika.

Now working on a revised edition of his landmark book Geology of Anza-Borrego: Edge of Creation, Paul Remeika provides a fascinating look into the layers of fossils, rock, and time captured in the Salton Trough and on natural display at the “out of doors museum” of Anza-Borrego, and discusses the myriad of fault blocks and tectonic forces which make Anza-Borrego one of the most seismically active areas in North America.
