How nature built the Pacific Northwest we love to explore

The Northwest is home to a host of fascinating natural features, from the Columbia River Gorge to the coastline and Cascades. But have you ever wondered what natural forces have shaped the landscapes we love? This week on the Peak Northwest podcast, we connect with Leslie Moclock and Jacob Selander, the authors of “Rocks, Minerals, and Geology of the Pacific Northwest,” for a primer on our region’s geology.
