Columbia River Gorge Field Trip – Hood River, OR
May 2, 2015$15 – $25
Catastrophic Floods in the Columbia River Gorge
Led by Dennis Bokovoy, we will explore hands-on evidence for 3 catastrophic floods in the Gorge, the Global Flood, Flood Basalt, and the Lake Missoula Flood. As we caravan with our cars, we will examine evidence for the Global Flood including pillow lava, petrified wood and burnable charcoalized wood trapped between basalt layers. Following the path of the Missoula Flood waters that over flowed the south rim of the Columbia River we drive through Fairbanks Gap to see huge gravel ripples and a large delta left there. You will find and collect beautiful quartzite rocks transported over 300 miles from the Rocky Mountains by the Global Flood.
