This geologic tour in the Leavenworth area heads up the Wenatchee River Valley to Lake Wenatchee. We’ll look at everything from Chumstick sandstone to the glacial features from the Icicle Creek and Lake Wenatchee Glaciers. We’ll see the Leavenworth fault, identify glacial moraines, discuss how streams change with time, and examine 90 million year old igneous rocks and even older metamorphic rocks!
