- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
As a geologist retired to the Gorge 3+ years ago, the Floods have been a great topic of interest, education, and investigation for me, and for teaching others. I want to make sure people are aware of the Ice Age Floods Institute (IAFI, http://www.iafi.org/index.htm) and the Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail.
I'm happy to be a member of the IAFI for it's field trips, research support, and political involvement. An important contribution has been their lobbying and support for the Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail.
The Trail is going to be an important educational and tourist resource for the region when (and if) it ever gets funded. Meanwhile the IAFI can help get a start on the Trail by identifying, and maybe signing, compelling and publically accessible features.
