  •  The Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail..... (9+ / 0-)

    Ice Age Floods, The Columbia Plateau, and Terroir

    I find it of great interest that environmental events occurring tens of thousands and even millions of years in the past continue to contribute to life'™s small pleasures of quaffing world class wines. Also, our short lives do not last long enough to witness events such as the millions of years of lava flows and hundreds of thousands of years of cataclysmic floods that can only be comprehended on a geologic time scale. However, we can share, commemorate, and appreciate these monumental, earth-shaping events as was done recently in 2009 when the U.S. Congress formally designated The Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail.
    RonK posted this last Sunday, but it is still enjoyable and interesting reading. It is good to celebrate and enjoy the wonders of our world as we worry about the many threats to our environment.

    Thanks MB and to all who write this fascinating collection of interesting reading.

    Love is the lasting legacy of our lives
