The only ceanothus I know of that grows in the area with purple flowers and relatively thin, serrated leaf edges is C. oliganthus... so I'm quite confident in that Id. I can also kind of spot it on the aerial photo :) It has a very distinct olive green signature on there... and tends to grow in the valleys and steeper north slopes where there is shade. In slightly drier areas you will pick up Ceanothus crassifolius... you may have seen it on your explore as well. It has white flowers but flowers earlier in the year.
