I have mentioned a great deal that the Mojave desert and the Salton Sea area sports a rifting zone.

On Possible California Volcanic Venting and Rifting Zone
Here is a video I made on the fly to explain why venting may be possible in the California desert, as described by Dutchsinse and some of his fans. I shot this with a Sony Cybershot point and shoot camera. I explain the area where I live, from Pisgah and Amboy crater 50 miles to the north, to Mission Creek and Covington Flats Volcanos 6 to 10 miles south of my house. There are young volcanos all around my house, indeed! I don't want to make too many conclusions, but do know a few things about my local volcanos, which are many, and want to share.
