'On the Trail of the Ice Age Floods'

It isn't hard to picture flooding on our side of the Cascades. Just wait until November if you have any doubts. But if you want evidence of flooding on a truly massive scale, you actually need to head east. While the landscape may seem dry as a bone, there are examples everywhere of the ancient floods that scoured the land.

In order to truly see the evidence, though, you need a trained expert. If you come to the library this Saturday, Sept. 29th, at 2 p.m. you will get to hear from the perfect guide. Geologist and author Bruce Bjornstad will be discussing his latest book: On the Trail of the Ice Age Floods: The Northern Reaches.

Come learn how a landscape was transformed by ice age floods and learn how to spot the signs of this change carved into the rock. The Northern Reaches is actually the second volume in the series and focuses on sites in the upper Columbia basin and Idaho panhandle. In addition to learning about fascinating geology, this book is also a great guide to hikes east of the Cascades.
