White Bluffs landslides along Columbia River

Looking north at landslide topography at White Bluffs. From "Washngton Landscapes Blog"

Happy New Year, everyone.

Dan McShane publishes occasional geology field trip-style posts on his Washington Landscapes blog. His recent post on landslides in the Hanford Reach of the Columbia River (link here) is worth keeping in mind for next time you are in the area looking for some geo-scenes to visit. Dan describes irrigation-induced landslides along the Columbia River’s Hanford Reach at White Bluffs, and also a much larger, and older, bedrock slide.
