They mark where one point ends and another starts. The San Andreas Fault is such a border, the division in between two fantastic tectonic plates: the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. While the structural limit between Point Reyes et cetera of North America forms the landscape and separates along the San Andreas Fault, structural task forms our whole planet. On the other hand, when the impact of two continental plates compresses the crust along a plate boundary, mountain ranges without much, if any, volcanism are thrust countless feet high, as were the Alps and Himalayas. The San Andreas Fault is not the site of plate crashes or diversions yet of lateral, or transform, movement where the plates slide past each other, the Pacific Plate traveling northwest relative to the North American Plate.
