Denny Creek Slippery Slap and Keekwulee Falls, WA

Doug, Ron, and I headed up Denny Creek to hunt for interesting rocks on July 14, 2002. Doug is a former geologist, Ron was an aspiring geologist some years ago, and I don't know the difference between sedimentary and metamorphic rock.

This tree looked interesting with it's entire center hollowed out. A picture for the kids. A picture for the ladies.

The slippery slap; with a hidden geological feature! Can you see it crossing the middle of the picture? Can you see it now? This is a close up of the rock dike (dark rock) that formed while this entire rock mass was still in motion. As the lighter colored rock moved the dike broke.
