My Blog Experiment
I travel all over Washington State assessing potential geology hazards. I try to read the landscape I am seeing. Why does the ground look the way it does? What does the vegetation say about the place I am visiting. Has the land been altered by historic uses? This blog will share my observations on my various explorations and ventures around Washington State and occasionally beyond.
Dan McShane is an engineering geologist with Stratum Group, a geology and environmental consulting company based in Bellingham, Washington. Dan has been reading Washington State landscapes since driving across the Horse Heaven Hills with his father and brother in 1970. Dan's wife has started painting Washington landscapes. The intent of this blog is to help all Washington travelers better understand the landscapes we see and share field observations.
