': ' • The number of earthquakes measuring M 1.0 or stronger increased from the pre: vious week, rising by four and topping the Z0 quake-per-week mark for the first time since the second week of May. The intensity of seismicity remained relaxed, producing two events in the M Z range. • Driving the action was a small seismic swarm at the Calif0rnia-Nevada border east of Truckee. The sequence began Fri- day afternoon and slowly clicked off a couple events a day until Tuesday after- noon when the activity stopped. All of the action was small. Largest: M 1.9. • The largest quake measured M 2.6 and occurred Tuesday night on the northwest- ern slope of Lassen Peak near Whitmore. • Three quakes were detected north- west of Chester and 1.5 miles south of Drakesbad near Terminal Geysers. The occurred on the Hot Springs fault, which ruptured with a large earthquake not too long ago and created the open frac- tures that are responsible for Terminal Geysers and Boiling Springs Lake. The fault displacements can still be seen today. • ..@ :,_., * : • %, Zac Jensen, left, Nick Turner, Luke Zempel and Samuel Lawson pause at the trail connection from Long Lake to the Pacific Crest Trail on June 20.

Photo by Scott Lawson Boy Scouts en'oy Lakes Basin outing Samuel Lawson Special to Feather Publishing On Friday, June 20, Troop 151 of the Boy Scouts of America, under the guidance of committee member Dan Zempel, camped out at Lakes Basin Campground. The scouts, from Quincy and Graeagle, practiced lashing skills with poles and ropes, cooking from scratch with a Dutch oven, and setting up tents. Along with these activities, the group was able to make a 1,000-foot vertical ascent, traversing several of the Lakes Basin trails, including a small piece of the Pacific Crest Trail. The troop worked on merit badges during the campout, and scouts were able to check off an Eagle Scout requirement, the 1,000-foot climb, in their scout books. Participating scouts were Zac Jensen, Samuel Lawson, Nick Turner and Luke Zempel, all from Quincy. Accompanying them were Dan Zempel and Scott Lawson. To learn more about Troop 151, contact Jan Jensen at 283-2209.
