It's Our Fault
After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Californians became more conscious San Andeas fault. The San Andreas is estimated to be at least 800 miles long and about ten miles deep. From the air, the straight line of it across our desert is clear.
There are places along the fault where water wells up. At some of those places an oasis may be found with beautiful native palms and perhaps a small pool. Earthquakes originating in the fault can so shake the desert hills along it, that landslides created there raise so much dust that i looks as though those hills are on fire.
