What happened at Crater Lake and why is it such a scenic site?Well, this book answers those questions and more and makes some sense out of the geography. For you "Creationists" and "Intelligent Design" folks, it corresponds to Days 2&3.Individual chapters are devoted to the major Cascade peaks, including the Garabaldis. C [...]


    • Great background information on the geology and natural history of the Cascades. On a recent trip to Oregon, this provided loads of interestingly-written information both for casual travelers (my friends) and for more ardent geology enthusiasts (like me).
