Rock Outcrop Ca44-d2: The Christianstead Subdivision

Outcrops between Hidden Valley Drive and Farmhouse Road. The Christianstead subdivision is underlain by interlayered mafic and felsic gneiss with large pegmatites. The felsic gneiss, in the northwestern half of this subdivision, is deformed granodiorite, seen as massive igneous layers with only rare crinkle folding. There are a few “bright eye” textures on the west end of this subdivision, which is all underlain by granodiorite.
