    Bunn, J. T., and Montgomery, D. R., Patterns of wood and sediment storage along debris-flow impacted headwater channels in old-growth and industrial forests of the western Olympic Mountains, Washington, in Riparian Vegetation and Fluvial Geomorphology: Hydraulic, Hydrologic, and Geotechnical Interactions, edited by S. J. Bennett and A. Simon. Forests cover about half the state's land area, mostly west of the North Cascades. Approximately two-thirds of Washington's forested area is publicly owned, including 64 percent of federal land. Common trees and plants in the region are camassia, Douglas fir, hemlock, penstemon, ponderosa pine, western red cedar, and many species of statehood: Washington Territory.

The format of the citations is: Author. Mount Baker’s a stratovolcano that erupted its way through the metamorphic rock of the North Cascades. I took the photo from the parking lot at a spot called Artist’s Point –at the end of WA –and my editor nixed it because I already had enough snow-capped volcanoes in the book.

    The Olympic-Wallowa lineament (OWL) – first reported by cartographer Erwin Raisz in on a relief map of the continental United States – is a physiographic feature of unknown origin in the state of Washington (northwestern U.S.) running approximately from the town of Port Angeles, on the Olympic Peninsula to the Wallowa Mountains of eastern Oregon. Forearc basins and uplifts in western Washington—from south to north, the Tacoma, Seattle, and Everett Basins—are defined mainly on the basis of high-amplitude geophysical anomalies, with faults hypothesized where the gradients are strongest (Blakely et al., ; Brocher et al., ; Danes et al., ).Many of the faults found between the basins and the adjacent uplifts are active and Cited by: 9.

The Geology and Structure of the Canyon Creek-Church Mountain Area, North Cascades, WashingtonCited by: 1. This superb book is a guide to the geology and natural history of the North Cascades-a wild, nearly roadless mountain range in northern Washington State.

The book is not only an indispensable visitors' guide that describes key viewpoints and outcrop features along roads and trails in the region, but also explains to the novice, how the North Cascades came into being in wonderfully lucid language/5(6).

Composed of everything from volcanic island arcs and deep ocean sediments, to parts of old continents and even pieces of the deep subcrustal mantle of the earth, Washington's North Cascade region is a true geologic mosaic.

North Cascades National Park Geology. The North Cascades are still rising, shifting and forming. Geologists believe that these mountains are a collage of terranes, distinct assemblages of rock separated by faults.

Fossil and rock magnetism studies indicate that the North Cascades terranes were formed thousands of miles south in the Pacific Ocean.

The North Cascade Range, commonly referred to as the North Cascades, is the northern part of the Cascade Range that stretches from northern California into British Columbia, where it merges with the Coast Mountains of British Columbia at the Fraser River.

The Cascade Range is part of a vast mountain chain that spans for over miles, from Mount Shasta, in northern California to British Columbia in the north. The beautiful North Cascade Range, located in northwestern Washington State, has some of the most scenic, and geologically complex mountains in the United States.

Go miles to its end. Hike the trail four miles to the Box Canyon. The USGS Cascade Pass quad covers the area.

Another Box Canyon is found north of Grouse Mountain west of Lake Chelan. It is labeled on the USGS Navare Peak quad. On the map this canyon appears to be very deep and steep. When looking for solitude or a quiet, cool creek to ramble along, look no further than Canyon Creek.

This trail’s gentle tread and easy grade were cut long ago for horse-pack trains. Along this old supply route to the mines there are numerous babbling brooks, and other natural wonders to keep you entertained.
