One Year Ago

Dead western red cedars in what is now a salt water marsh

Back in January 2010 I had a trip to Washington's outer coast. Spent a couple nights in Aberdeen and did some exploration of the salt water marshes along the lower ends of some streams and rivers including a geologically famous site on the Copalis River HERE. I also observed tsunami deposits overlying Indian sites on the outer coast. The great quake of 1700 had devastating impact on the outer coast communities and I suspect broad impacts elsewhere. Something to think about on this grim one year anniversary.
