Thorp Lahar with Central Rocks

I previously posted a suggested side trip off of the usual Interstate 90 east-west or west-east drive across central Washington ellensburg-formation-side-trip . There are a couple of great pull offs along Highway 10 along the Yakima River west of Ellensburg. In addition the road passes through an area that recently had a wild fire in the summer of 2012. Nick Zentner did a video of one of the sites that helps one through thinking about these spectacular sections. In addition to the Thorp Lahar, there are some interesting interviews that have been put together by Central Rocks that are worth checking out.
