My good friend Richard Hutto has been the lead on this mapping project for a while now.  Here is an update on the fruits of his labor this season.
Hello all, Just wanted to let you know that the Statemap 2014-15 field mapping project has resulted in the publication of three new geologic maps.  These are the Parma, Prim, and Greers Ferry quadr...

I just came off the review committee for STATEMAP. Fun to see this posted, along with the other Ark-Survey stuff.

And, as we reach scorching temperatures in the west because of our unusual 2015 El Niño, here's a few more pics of the rain associated with it in May:

Looking up Dinwiddie Arm (of Long Valley Creek?) into the area of Roberts and Coulee Canyons. Mount Ina Coolbrith, with summit at 8051 ft (2454 m), is the long sloping mountain in the mist; Little Haskell Peak, at 6135 ft (1870 m), is the dark hill on the far left.

"Besides, there’s just something satisfying about dyeing large quantities of water bright colors" Indeed!

#Mining activities can have a significant impact on the #geomorphology and #hydrology of catchments, both during mining and for many years post-mining. The main goal of our recent paper is to establish (and test) a rapid, low-cost methodology to characterize the open-pit mining geomorphic features using #UAVs and digital terrain analysis based on #SfM elevation data. A local scale rapid geomorphologic characterisation of mines could be used to support #sustainable #environmental planning and mitigate the consequences of anthropogenic alterations due to mining. #Anthropocene   #Landscape   #Sustainability

The frozen "waterfalls" of Hierve el Agua, Oaxaca, Mexico. Like an "inside-out" cave, these calcium carbonate flowstones drape over cliffs up to 90 meters above the valley floor. Spectacular video by drone. Click link to play: http://ezsnips.com/XZSf_KAlU9JUd

You're feeling hot & humid in the summer sun. You need a cool pick-me-up. How about heading down 2,000 meters into the Guayanilla Canyon, off the south coast of Puerto Rico? Join the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer for highlights of Dive 7. Animals, ROV, and canyon wall geology - what more could you want? Thanks +oceanexplorergov

Given the weeks events, It seems a little Rainbow Stratigraphy is in order. 
At the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in Gansu, China, tourists flock to see China's own version of the Grand Canyon: A mountain range of densely packed layers of minerals and rock that are dramatically striated into a layer cake of magenta, maroon, and lemon-colored stone.

You'll no longer be able to stop here when on the road or at the end of a field day (northern Nevada):
Water Hole #1 in Golconda, Nevada — a bar made famous in the late 1970s by an industrious pig, Waterhole Ike — closed sometime within the last two to three years, before I had a chance to stop by and check out their beer collection.

Seasonally reactivated landslide - Dart Valley, Southern Alps, New Zealand. Recent rains produce mud slurry the consistency of wet concrete that can transport bouldery debris and generate strange "mud bubbles". Beautiful example of dynamic system of interacting components - mountain slopes, geologic structure, surface water and sediment erosion, transportation and deposition, etc.
