Moderate quake was in the Snake River mountain range-

I first learned about this when someone made a note of it on a photo I had uploaded to Panoramio (Google Earth). My photo was at the quake’s location.

Story in the Jackson Hole News and Guide. By Cory Hatch and Angus M. Thuermer Jr.  Quake Shakes Region.

The Idaho/Wyoming border area doesn’t have as many quakes as Yellowstone Park, but it has quake a few and they tend to be stronger.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
