Learn about the eruption of pillow basalts as well as the deposition of ribbon cherts, shales, and greywacke sandstones, by visiting Cronkhite Beach, Point Bonita, and Kirby Cove or Hawk Hill depending upon conditions. Participants will also learn about the subduction of the Farallon Plate beneath the North America Plate and observe the intricate folding and faulting of these rocks in the Franciscan Complex. We will also discuss the relationship between Ice Age cycles, giant megafauna, and the recent flooding of San Francisco Bay. Lastly, we will talk about the San Andreas Fault, which lies several miles offshore of Marin County. We will hike up to 5 miles and gain up to 500 feet in elevation gain.
