I grabbed two shots from Katie's Book Face page. This one goes here, she's on an Excursion Club hike in October.

She's just doing great down there and I am so damn proud of her (don't know who the kid in front of her is):

You should be proud. What she is doing with the "club" is great.

The kid in front of her looks too innocent. Send your "guy" after him to find out what he is really up to.

You know, with my Katie, I don't need to. With her, if any guy is "up to" something, it's because it was OK with her.

After a weather delay, I'm off to Red Rocks this afternoon. By way of U.C.S.B.

I get to spend tomorrow hanging out with my oh-so-cool college girl. And, as I hear it on the phone, she's really looking forward to it (and, naturally, I am too).

Katie's still involved with the Excursion Club (of course). She's still a staff member for the club, leading trips. I'll get to see the Excursion House and meet a bunch of her friends (although I've already met her friend Katie; the friend who is mentioned below).

But that's not the question for this post. The question for this post is: should I tell Katie that her mother specifically violated her instructions?

What instructions you ask?  Cheesy  Grin

These instructions (the photos below are from Vicki and Katie's text message exchange; they are cropped - in one case seriously cropped - since this is a family site). First photo:





Second photo (the two Katies):

I'm not all that shocked that Katie has long, pretty legs. I'm not so shocked that she'd pose in a bikini for a calendar. It seems normal now that she's off at school, drives, goes to classes and does all the adult stuff.

But on September 3rd of this year she'll turn 20. Twenty years old. Holy crap how can that have happened?

Sitting in her comparative eastern religions class with her right now. They're all kids! One of them is having his diaper changed. The lecturer can't be more than 35 years old.

By the way Mud, I assume you moved that stupid thread from the Pinnacles section to here? Good call at least moving it to here, although deleting it would have been better (but then again, maybe not; then we get into the whole censorship thing).

Probably 60. It's a lecture. The auditorium's about half full.

I've singlehandedly increased the average age in the room by at least five years.

Well how cool. Katie Pip will be here in less than an hour. She'll be here until after Christmas. Both girls in the house again for a while.

I wonder if she'll recognize what's covering our driveway (it's an inch of solid ice that's simply not melting).

She's now 7/12 done with college.

Life can't get any better than this.

We had a nice dinner with all four chairs filled.

It's colder than a witch's broomstick out there and warm in here from two wood stoves.

Christmas carols playing, the girls just got the Christmas stuff down and are setting up and decorating the tree. Bantering back and forth.

(Favorite line so far, from Katie regarding a dispute about how to set up the tree: "Tricia, I've been doing this sh#t a lot longer than you").

Well I'll be. It looks like Katie has time for a short trip with Dad! She and I and the dogs, plus maybe some of her Excursion Club friends. We'll backpack three days in the San Rafael Wilderness, just over an hour from campus.

I love that area. It's the same place where Vicki and I got engaged 192 years ago. And I love this kid.

Katie and I had a fine, fine three day trip in great weather. We got a few nice photos, including this "selfie:"




Hiking up Manzana Canyon:







It didn't take very long until we saw one of these:




We gave him plenty of time to finish his trail crossing before we resumed our hike:




Manzana Creek always has wonderful pools:




Our goal for the day was nine miles to the top of this bluff (and nice views, sunsets and sunrises):













And, dinner as the sun sets:

Fun shots. That pool looks really inviting - especially with the hot temps today - and the snake looks BIG! Glad you guys had fun. It's been unusually hot by the coast today and looks like the Pinns high was nearing 100! I thought about trying to head down and get a few bolts replaced. Not to be. Took a sweltering uni ride instead and got a few brief interludes of cool ocean air each time I turned toward the sea...storm's comin' in...

Thanks J.C. On my drive home yesterday the temps near the ocean were in the 90s! And here at home today, Vicki had all the doors and windows open. A storm is coming, but late spring is too!

Katie and I day-hiked the next day into and then down White Ledge Canyon almost to the Sisquoc River:













Saw our good luck horned toad:




Flowers were everywhere:




And, again; this time our youngest dog Halifax was charging up the trail and ran directly over this shortly before I came upon it - and then I had to work (from a distance) to get it to move off the trail:




Camp chores:




And, finally, what I think Katie actually went on the trip for: dogs; I think there are times when they worship her  Grin

I was pretty bummed that Katie couldn't join us at all on the PCT this summer. She did he own fantastic trip to Malaysia and Thailand (and is still blogging about it). But it didn't leave any time for trips with us.

We partially made up for it though with a father/daughter backpack into the Emigrant Wilderness these last few days (U.C.S.B. doesn't start until late this month). It actually felt a little odd to be hiking without Tricia at first, but then we settled in to a great routine and I remembered how well I like this wonderful daughter too:




There was a new dusting of snow as we got started (it is, after all, almost Pinnacles season already):




Three miles into the back country, proving that one has to mind one's manners no matter where they are, we ran into this character (most of you will not know who it is, but Rob certainly will - he's a climbing friend who lives one mile from us):




In Whiteside Meadow:







East Flange Rock from Upper Relief Valley:




Salt Lick Meadow:




First night's campsite in Spring Meadow:




The next morning:




At Deer Lake:




We call this "simul-fetching:"




In mid shake:




Last morning:




I realized on this trip what  tough life I really have. It seems that every time I "do stuff" (backpacking in this case), I want to do more of it. We got back and all I could think about was how to get back into the Emigrant before the snow flies. And then I went climbing today (and I can't wait to get up there to redpoint this one route).

Tough life.

I'm at Katie's house now, packing for a three day backpack in the San Rafael Wilderness starting tomorrow. She looks great. I can't believe she's already in the second week of the last quarter of her senior year.

I shuttle drove for the Dawson's on Sunday; After I drove around, I hiked out to and then along the PCT to join them at Whitewater River (the whole area they're in now is due west of Joshua Tree, starting at about a 45 minute drive from Hidden Valley Campground). Some of my fondest PCT hiking with both daughters was in that area, basically the second half of this trip:

http://www.mudncrud.com/forums/index.php?topic=1059.0

We then climbed at Joshua Tree for two days (Laura and I got totally shut down on a "5.10a" face; Steve's shoulder hurt and he didn't try to climb anything that hard).

More shuttle driving followed; Dawson's are right now on day two of a three day backpack designed to take them from the desert east of the San Gorgonio massif up onto it and then to Big Bear Lake. I hiked in with them part of the way yesterday.

Tonight is the Excursion Club slideshow. As requested, it consists of about 100 of my best climbing slides. I snuck in about 30 of my favorite Katie photos too, and a few of a daughter of our good friends the Klatts; she's not only here at U.C.S.B., but is now an Excursion leader too. "They" say that turnout will be big. It's interesting though; in spite of rumors that some Excursion kids will join the backpack, no-one's committed. Katie says that that's normal; kids rarely commit to any adventure (especially for the weekend) until the last second.

Me? Hell no. I never need an excuse for a nap.

How old were you when the video was made?

(Speaking of sleeping, I'm hanging out right now, having had breakfast and coffee an hour ago, waiting for the college kids to wake up so we can get going.)

Standing room only last night for the slide show (35 kids?). Katie has sure chosen to associate herself with good people down here.

I started in Akron at the local sledding hill at around the same age (14).

The original boards were pretty flimsy and if you weren't careful you could snap one by pulling up on the leash too hard.



I can't believe they are making them again. https://www.snurferboards.com/

When I moved to KY at 16 we couldn't find any snurfers at the stores so we bought some cheap water skis and modified those. Eventually Burton came out with something similar that had two metal runners, rubber straps for your feet and a leash. I wish I still had that old board - it would be a collector's item now. I still have my plastic Sims board.

Reminds me of the jumping shoes that came out when we were kids in the '60s. A top plate and a bottom plate connected by springs. They strapped to your shoes and let you jump high (spring-assisted). No support of any kind though, so any slight off-angle landing would twist them off your shoes and twist the crap out of your ankle too.

Unlike "snurfs," the kiddie jumping things did not go further.

Another fun three-day loop trip with Katie and one of her Excursion friends (Emma). We had great weather and no rattlesnakes (about time on that second one).

At the trailhead:




We quickly saw our good luck horned toad (a huge one!):




This trip we hiked up one of the very few (only?) trails that I hadn't hiked in the San Rafael Wilderness; going up Lost Canyon Trail led us to the east end of Hurricane Deck and a great first night's bivy spot (up high on a ridge, so we had to carry lots of water the last four miles):













Katie labeled that last shot "Sponsored by Salsas Awesome Hats" (those are both Vicki-made hats of course).

We got very early morning light at our perch:




The morning's first four miles led east to the end of the Hurricane Deck Trail (the first mile hadn't been brushed in years, the rest of this hike was on a good, fairly clear path):



















White Ledge Creek was as full as I've ever seen it:




We worked our way up the creek to eventually bivy above Alcove Falls (where Katie and I had stayed last year too):







A dog's comfort is one thing. But really? That's my crazy creek chair!




The next day we hiked out the nine miles to the car and then back to Isla Vista for lunch and to drop off the girls:

Looks like you guys had a fun and peaceful outing.
The change from horizontal to tilted strata in the fourth picture may be a fault (unless there is some type of optical illusion). The tilt is really obvious in the 7th picture at your perch. Not sure if that is a local or regional feature since the Coast Ranges have so much variety. Most of the rocks appear to be a fairly clean-looking sandstone (quartz rich). Most likely old seafloor pushed up along faults over millions of years. Sleep Sleep Sleep I'm in geological mode sitting here proctoring an exam.

I'm curious what you mean by "local or regional" features.

The Hurricane Deck is about 20 miles long, oriented east-west (see it in photos five and last). The really obvious strata in the fourth photo are part of the Hurricane Deck (in particular, that fourth photo shows an area which is called on maps "East Deck").

In turn, the Hurricane Deck is part of a sub-range which is part of the east-west oriented Santa Ynez Mountains.

Is this all regional or local?

(And by the way, are you proud that - based on your training of me/complaining to me - I did not say that the deck "runs" east-west.)

Here are two more photos of the Hurricane Deck. These are taken from the southeast (on a 2013 trip with Tricia).

The heavy, obvious strata from this trip report's fourth photo are at/just off the right edge of the first photo, and can be seen in the second photo:

No. It's really soft sandstone. And quite flakey in many places.

It's all relative and scale related. Local is usually associated with smaller scale and regional with larger scale.
It sounds like in this case we could say that the Hurricane Deck and the sub range are local features within the Santa Ynez Mtns (regional). The Santa Ynez Mtns would be local relative to the Coast Ranges (regional).

If all the layers of rock were tilted that same direction and angle in all of the sub ranges within the Coast Ranges then that would be a regional attitude. If not it would be considered local. I bet the UC Santa Barbara geology field classes hike out to measure the strike and dip (attitude) of those strata and plot it on maps.

I'm curious if you can post that map in a slightly larger version?

As near as I can tell, the purple band represents the highest reaches of the San Rafael Wilderness (Mount McKinley, San Rafael Peak and the Mission Pine area). Is that a different type of rock (the colors show different types of rock, right)?

I just did a quick search and that one came up in images, so the resolution is really low.
That slice is pretty small scale. You'd have to try and figure out which quadrangle you were in and then search that.
The beauty is the USGS has a lot of maps out there as open file pdf's that are really high resolution.
Here is one I found for the coastal plain in that area. You can zoom in to your heart's content.
https://pubs.usgs.gov/sim/3001/downloads/pdf/SIM3001map.pdf

It looks like many of the maps for that area may only be available in hard copy. They were made by Dibblee. He was a mapping maniac BITD. A legend of geologic mapping  Yes Nod
This website recommends doing more searches since the site is in archives.
https://geomaps.wr.usgs.gov/archive/socal/maps/santa_barbara/index.html

That image I posted did not include the legend, so I don't know what rock type that is but you are correct - each color corresponds to a different rock type. The geology around there looks really interesting. It is no wonder Tanya Atwater spent her career at UCSB. I met her on the west side of Pinnacles a couple years ago. She is retired now but was a major player in the development of Plate Tectonics theory.

The easiest way for me to determine what is where on that map is by Lake Cachuma (one drives right by it on the way to the usual trailheads). My recollection is that there's a fair amount of granite in the higher reaches of the area (at least I'm fairly sure it's granite - I haven't studied it but it looked and felt that way). I was wondering whether the purple on the map was granitic rock (maybe older rock - country rock if I'm using that phrase correctly - that was uplifted along with everything else nearby).

And, although I've never mentioned this to you, I did take general education level geology while at U.C.S.B. I especially enjoyed the field study portions of the class. I have no memory of who my professor was though (but if she's retired now, it may well have been professor Atwater).

Nice. If there is granitic rock in the area it is likely intrusive rock that migrated up into the sedimentary country rock.
Continued uplift along with weathering and erosion uncovered it. 
I'll see if I can figure it out when I get some more time Big Grin

So which would be the older rock (if the rock up high is granite), the granite or the sandstone(s)?

Haven't been able to excavate any files. I found some references to the quads but they are only available at the libraries - UCSC and Stanford.

I will guess that the red on that map is granitic and the purple is probably metamorphic. The state geologic map uses those conventions.
They use pink for volcanic, red for plutonic, blue, green and purple for metamorphic. Unfortunately there are no standard colors for geologic maps.

The country rock is always older. It had to be there first in order for the granite to intrude.
The sedimentary rocks would also typically be much softer than the granite and so they would wear away quicker leaving the granite sticking up.
