   Geologist Jad D'Allura leads this hike across massive volcanic debris flows sprinkled with a few agates amid huge boulders, dike ribs (hardened lava in earthquake cracks), and the massive intrusion of Hobart Bluff protruding above the landscape like a frozen colossus.  The view from the top of the Bluff allows windows into the complex and varied geology of the Klamath Mountains, the Bear Creek Valley, and the Western Cascade volcanic rocks as they ascend to the peaks of the High Cascade volcanoes.
