PVM, Pine Valley Mountains, lies at the INTERSECTION of the Colorado Plateau, Cp, the I-15 hiway Lateral Fault, and the Virgin Anticline- forming a Heat Producing UPLIFT, which has rotated CW in Reaction to the CCW rotating Cp! Heat is produced with the slower Rate of Rotation than that of Cp, and this is NOT an extrusion because of its slow uplift! Its placement is 375 km from Death Valley, where there is a Shift in the angle of the Regional Polygon- creating the slow movement at PVM (375km Separation/17mm per year= 22 m.y.). This is Earth Tidal movement, rather than plate theory! Rotation has produced "outliers" sheared off the main laccolith, and "tic marks" in the granite-like rock. Slickensides found at Harrisburg, parallel to I-15, show the direction of movement.

SUMMARY:Pine Valley Mountains, PVM, is separated from the Colorado Plateau, Cp, by the Hurricane fault, Hf, and these 3 Entities altogether produce DYNAMICS with 3 different AGES and 3 different ROTATION RATES! Consequently, HEAT has been produced at 22 million years, 1 m.y. DIVIDE VULCANISM, (followed by Crater Hill, and extrusions until a Quarter million years ago) and Now (still) at Pah Tempe Hot Springs! Dynamics and EARTH TIDES can be Measured, Photoed, and Seen there. 

Pine Valley Mountains, PVM, had the Pine Village settled first (in a Valley atop the Range), and has many HIKING TRAILS for escaping the Summer Heat of St. George, UT! Mostly it is Monzonite- a Granite-like Rock, but there are Basalt outpourings to the North.

Monzonite Outlier, Rotated CW, away from the Main Laccolith (flat-base Long Dome INTRUSION). Remember, that what you see has been Shaped by EROSION, after being Fractured along Earth Tidal ARCS:
Google Earth view:

"Tic Marks" occur in the outlier, and are Common near the I-15 feeder at Toquerville (Anderson) Junction:
Others are shown, oriented Generally N-S, aligned with a CIRCULAR outcrop of Jn (Jurassic Navajo sandstone):
Notice that the E-W "Tics" are ORTHOGONAL (perpendicular) to the general Alignment! These track "over the EDGES" of the Monzonite base rock. My APPRAISAL is that they are HARDENED by the Gravitational "Jerks" of  Hilda (Trojan) Asteroids. The SCALE is only on the order of a meter, which is a 40,000,000th of  the Earth's Circumference! Comets or small Asteroids fit this category.
PVM, on 20 March/2015, the day after Solar Eclipse, the start of Spring, and the New Moon:

Above, in Brown is an Uplift, which is the Larger of those Parallel to PVM, and Increasingly Rising and Extending to the SW! Wave is related to the PVM orientation- but why is it Longer?
Wave is younger than PVM- near 2 m.y., and still has the NE-SW orientation. It is Rising, and shows gthat the SW end of PVM is younger also! It is part of the 2 m.y. POLYGON, and reflects the Youth of the Virgin Anticline!

Nearby YELLOW KNOLLS occur near the base  of PVM:

Blue is almost faded in the Rain, but Triangular center has slight blue!
1. PVM is a Laterally-moving melt of previous Shallow sedimentary Rock, which has been Rotated in response to the CCW-rotating Colorado Plateau (Cp). HEAT was produced by the drag of the Faster-moving CCW Cp, as PVM rotated away, CW, at the Hiway I-15 valley. 
2. Small diameter "Tic marks" attest to the observation that Shifting, rotating, and Indenting still occur;
3. Slickensides at Harrisburg wash show that Movement is to the South.
Slickensides above, are along the SE trail, and below is the one from Harrisbirg:
Oak Campground has Trails leading to the East:
4. PVM is still moving in Response to the Polygon angular SHIFT at Death Valley:
Difficult to determine the Shift, and below is a FIRST MEASUREMENT:
Above SHIFT is 23.4 degrees, which yields a 15 sided Polygon. This can be IMPROVED, and below is the 2nd TRIAL:
The FOCUS, or lowest Elevation, must be the Center of the Rotation- to find the likely SHIFT, and above Green line is Near this POINT. The POLYGON has 360/8= 45 Sides. This has UNKNOWN ERROR! Polygon with 45 sides of 30 km each yields 1350 km Circumference and  430 km separation from Hf (compared to Measured 330 km)! Accuracy must be IMPROVED!
1000 km Circumference and 50 sides x 20 km each must be APPROXIMATED!

Death Valley is an ACTIVELY-MOVING feature, on a Regional POLYGON:

An Engineers View of DYNAMICS of the Universe:
 All following analyses proceed with the Assumption that the Rules of Gravitation (known or unknown) are the same for Earth-small scale, SS; the Large Scale-Solar System, LS, and the Very Large Scale-SPACE- VLS. Google Earth may be used for SS, Planetary data for LS, and less reliable are Astronometric data for VLS. Features found for Earth include:
1. Arcs and Spirals following Milankovitch's Axial, Precessional, and Elliptical cycles- including their Harmonics- e.g. 100 k.y., 10 k.y., 1 k.y., and 100 years. 
2. Earth Tides: 10.24 mm/year and Larger- according to the Direction; this involves Errors, but I have been consistent with these Magnitudes- even though further work may find the errors Significant.
3. Between a Rise and a Sink there is a TRANSITION ZONE- called a Linear, and this broadly, is a Straight Line on Google Earth (becoming crooked by later developments)! Example is the Hurricane Fault.
4. Reversal of Earth Tides occurs with Subduction, such as the Cascades- moving easterly with Time; so far, this is caused by the Moon- which is Retrograde, rising 50 minutes later each day, relative to our Sun.
5. Rising Spirals are rotating CCW (counter-clockwise), and they develop a Hole with gravitational waves- which is later and Secondary; and,
6. Combination of 2 Spirals (Rising or Sinking) results in a Partial Figure 8, OlO, on Google Earth- e.g. the Mississippi River at the New Madrid giant Quake of 1811-1812, at the Junction of 2 Rivers.

Littlefield Wash, south of the Beaverdam Mt is in a TRENCH, filled with Muddy sandstone detritus, to a Depth of 6 km- one of Deepest in NA, attesting to the 2 to 4 m.y. Development!
