All shook up

I like Utah because of the lack of tornado, flood, hurricane, volcanic eruption or tsunami threat.

However we are 20+ years past due for "the big one", an earthquake thought strong enough to smash the cities.
My mom and I were talking about how strongly we'd be effected by an earthquake and she said she didn't think we were near a fault line, I said I thought we lived on one.
So we asked Google.

See that solid line? Thats a fault line. Do you see our house smushed underneath that solid line? Because it is right there.

Which makes sense, really...we are sitting at the base of a mountain.  This is the same area as that last picture, but more colorful:

(Hey look, it's George in the driveway!)
