Roadside Geology of Washington
The geology of Washington is a story of islands-- micro-continents-- coming in from the sea. Two hundred million years ago most of Washington consisted of two large islands, each one a scrap of continent, lying somewhere in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. One after the other they docked onto the North American continent, each adding its distinctive bit to the complex geologic and geographic mosaic of western North America.

Roadside Geology of Oregon
Until about 200 million years ago, the western margin of North America lay to the east, along the present Idaho border, and a broad coastal plain spread westward into Oregon. The rest of the state was ocean floor. Then the continent began moving slowly westward away from Europe and the floor of the Pacific Ocean began sliding beneath the western edge. That is what created Oregon, and this book tells how it happened.
Glacial Lake Missoula and Its Humongous Floods
Glacial Lake Missoula and Its Humongous Floods tells the tale of a huge Ice Age Lake that, when it suddenly drained, unleashed more then ten times the combined flow of all the modern rivers of the world. The book follows the path of the floodwaters as they raged from western montana across the Idaho Panhandle, then scoured eastern Washington and rushed down the Columbia Gorge to the Pacific Ocean.

Estwing Supreme 24 oz Chisel Edge Rock Hammer with End Cap E3-24BLC
Estwing Supreme 24oz Chisel Edge Rock Hammer with End Cap E3-24BLC
Estwing Supreme 24 oz Chisel Edge Rock Hammer with End Cap is the same exact hammer as Estwing Supreme 24 oz Chisel Edge Rock Hammer. It just has a different part number. Estwing will be canceling the part number E3-24PC since it's a duplicate. Estwing sometimes runs out of stock on the E3-24PC part number so we substitute the E3-24BLC
Chisel edge rock hammers are typically used when you want to split layers of rock apart when looking for fossils.

Roadside Geology of Alaska
Unraveling Alaska's complex and fragmented geologic history would have baffled Sherlock Holmes. Alaska is a mosaic patchwork, a collage of continental scraps swept in from the Pacific and added, one after the other, onto the far northwest corner of the continent. Here are the rocky foundations of Alaska, every bit as exotic as the landscape they support, just as varied and vital as the people who live in that landscape.
Due to the rugged terrain and limited road access, this is not just a roadside book--it describes the geology of southeast Alaska as one might see it from the observation lounge of one of Alaska's comfortable ferries traveling the marine highway.
