I've always had a pretty keen interest in geology. Recently started listening to the Joe Rogan podcasts. Got to the ones with Graham Hamcock and Randall Carlson. Pretty mindblowing shit. I smoke a lot of pot, too, so they are right up my alley :laughing:. Anyway, just looking at this picture and the scale of it just makes you say "holy fuck." Anyone got any other cool geologic formations to look at?

You lost me at Joe Rogan. But I thought this one was pretty cool.

I live 20 minutes from there, Ancient lakes/Quincy lakes area. Our entire area is a geological mindfuck when you start looking at the scale of it. Missoula flood fucked some stuff up. Dry falls, Grand Coulee, Moses Coulee, the whole Crab Creek area, lots of cool formations shaped by tons of water eroding rock away.

This should lock up the op for a couple of hours...

I remember learning about the Missoula floods in highschool and seeing pictures of the erosion lines 500ft up canyon walls.

Did some hunting in the badlands near St. John and was amazed at how that topography was effected by the floods.

In a similar area, the Palouse Hills are pretty neat. Ancient dunes that are agricultural fields now.

The fairly recent volcanic activity around Bend is pretty interesting. Cool to see recent lava flows, craters, etc.

On that note, Mt. St. Helens is really impressive to see in person. The shear amount of energy released from that event is mind-boggling.

The leftover of a flood channel that drains into the Columbia river basin. The Bretz floods.

I literally had to go to a jobsite in Quincy after I made my reply above haha. The canyons carved by the water around here are amazing. Like mentioned above the Palouse area is interesting as well. The Palouse falls are pretty sweet.

Up north by Wells Dam you can see huge boulders deposited on flats around the river basin from the floods. Talking house sized boulders moved like small rocks by those flood events.
 
Landslide Lake.

7.2 earthquake in 1946 dropped 53000000 cubic feet of rock into the lake below. The lake water went 160ft up the opposite slope and sent a 100ft wave down the valley.

For perspective the vertical face of Mt. Colonel Foster is around 300ft higher than El Capitan's.
 
If you cant turn left why the hell do you need a one way sign?

I think I'll just stay in the country.
