Many hikers can't resist comparing the San Jacinto Mountains with the High Sierra. It may be that these hikers have identified certain geological similarities: Both ranges are bold, uplifted masses of granite, both are westward tilted blocks located near powerful earthquake faults, both veer abruptly out of the desert.

Magnitude 3.7 and 3.3 earthquakes, 80 miles apart, struck early Saturday on the San Jacinto fault, the same fault where a moderate 4.9 temblor occurred Friday night. But a Caltech seismologist said it is 95% likely that no larger quake will occur along the San Jacinto--one of Southern California's most active faults--in the immediate future. The 3.7 earthquake hit at the northern end of the San Jacinto fault near San Bernardino at 3:24 a.m., while the 3.3, a 4:53 a.m.

A relatively evenhanded and necessarily inconclusive close-up look at immigration wars and identity politics in the Grand Canyon State, "The State of Arizona" (PBS, Monday) features major players and ordinary citizens on each side of the battle as well as some who look at both sides from a confounded middle ground. Directed by Carlos Sandoval and Catherine Tambini (collaborators on the 2004 "Farmingville," about the attempted murder of two Mexican day laborers in a Long Island town), it is set mostly around 2010 and 2011 and centers on the passage of, implementation of and challenges to SB 1070, a still-controversial multi-part anti-illegal-immigration bill.

Hikers at the Fuller Ridge trail head get a 7,700-foot head start to the top of 10,804-foot Mt. San Jacinto, but that doesn't mean this route is the easiest way to Southern California's second-tallest peak. Do the math first, and the hike (although long) seems moderate enough: 7.5 miles one way with an average elevation gain of only about 414 feet per mile. But then do the hike, and the math seems improbable. Fuller Ridge is a more difficult hike than the numbers suggest.
