We meet up with Nathan's friend, Jeff Grover, from Cuesta Community
College, at Morro Rock. He brought us a few miles north of Coyucos for
a regional overview and a short hike to look at a nice ophiolite
section. Good ribbon cherts and pillow basalt examples here, as well
as a small shear zone and more recent channel and fill on top of the
Franciscan here. Also discussed soil on top of terraces that are very
expansive; an important consideration in building areas like this.
