Malibu Canyon wallSMMs Lith PatternsFriends of mine are hiking/exploring/bushwhacking today up above Malibu Creek State Park, and wanted me to come along to teach them some plants.  I wanted to very much as I’ve been thinking about the shady riparian trail to the MASH site for months, but couldn’t.  They are having some exciting winds right now (‘G’ means Gusts or bursts of air, as wind blows from High to Low pressure in sharp gradients):
