In the Cascadia Subduction Zone, the END IS COMING! I'm not talking about the earthquake and tsunami, but of the subduction zone itself. But you'll have to be patient. It will take tens of millions of years.
Sugarloaf Rock at Cape Mendocino. Somewhere out to sea beyond the cape is where the Cascadia Subduction Zone is being destroyed, bit by bit. The end is coming! I'm not referring to the possible destruction caused by the possi...

Very strange skies over the Great Valley. Those aren't clouds.
Tell me this isn't one of the stranger looking skies you've ever seen. I would have been rather freaked seeing this without having known the origin. It's not clouds. We were driving home after our latest journey, and could ...

Amazing, all right!  My first thought was a haboob, like Phoenix has been getting the last several summers.  Sad about the fires.  Thanks for sharing these images, wow!

I guess I was ahead of the news. I was most of the way through my Pacific Northwest trip when the New Yorker article on the impending Cascadia earthquake went viral in a big way. So I'm starting a new blog series on our journey from one end the Cascadia Subduction Zone in Northern California to the other end in British Columbia.
The Lost Coast of Northern California If you've been following my blogs for the last few weeks, then you know I've been on the road in the Pacific Northwest. I'm not quite home yet, but I'm headed that way soon, and I've real...

It turns out that there are actually quite a few rocks to be seen in the Pacific Northwest. I am content...
Diablo Reservoir and Colonial Peak in North Cascades National Park I admit to being just a little bit snarky in some of my recent posts concerning the paucity of rocks seen on my latest journey through the Pacific Northwest. ...

I'm having a hard time finding rocks in the rainforest, so now I'm hallucinating them!
Archaeologists and geologists have it kind of tough in the rainforests. The people who lived here in past millennia utilized wood and bone most of the time in the making of their tools and habitations, and neither of those ma...

What's with all the plants covering the rocks? I'm a little surprised at how this quarry tour unfolded...
So, I'm out on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, enjoying my vacation with Mrs. Geotripper, and we're casting about trying to figure out what to do on this 300-mile long island. I'm doing some reading and find out that ther...

Gigantic elk parasites! Okay, not really. It was just crawling across a sign.
Ohmigod, ohmigod! Gigantic parasitic slugs feeding on elk! Ewww! Okay, not really. It's actually a slug, probably, maybe a Banana Slug crawling across an interpretive sign at the beginning of the Hall of Mosses Trail in the H...

Sure I "believe" in the gigantic ape-humans of the Pacific Northwest forests. That's one of them in the picture below. But belief doesn't prove much, and there are much more interesting giants out that way...
Yep, the first part of our journey into Dangerous Ground took us to the land of the Sasquatch, the legendary ape-human of the Pacific Northwest forests. That's not him in the picture above, although I could understand the mis...

I look across the valley to the Santa Cruz mountains that were once covered in redwoods and I cry. Thank you, +Garry Hayes

Vagabonding on Dangerous Ground in the Pacific Northwest. What's the difference between this series and the one I just finished on Driving Across the Most Dangerous Plate Boundary in the World? Well, this time we are driving ALONG the boundary. Last time it was ACROSS the boundary. More importantly, the Cascadia Subduction Zone is currently active in the Pacific Northwest. In Central California, it's been extinct for millions of years.

There were uninvited guests at the heron rookery, and they were terrifying.
 The evening started out peacefully enough. We were in Beacon Hill Park, one of the most beautiful in Victoria, out for an after-dinner walk at sunset. We were strolling through the small Japanese Park and pond, when a man po...

FALLACY REF is the best collection of memed logical fallacies in the history of memed logical fallacy collections.

I did some quick Google sleuthing and could not find the original source, but [EDIT] I have been told it is the creation of Glen Welch, to whom my sincerest thanks. (His originals can be found on Facebook, but please, be kind and don't break the internet if you visit his page!)

Now go. Share. Fill the internet with logic awareness. Future generations will thank you.

H/t to +Jane Skau​ for bringing this wonderfulness to my attention!
