My name is Ray Gallagher and I have lived in and around Bakersfield, California most of my life. I have always been interested in earthquakes, volcanoes and really anything and everything surrounding earth science. The last big quake to hit my area was the 7.5 1952 Kern County earthquake, which I am happy to say it was a few years before my time. My folks were teenagers at that time and they remember it well. Below you will find some pictures of my family, friends, surroundings and me.
