This is a large rock and sand quarry with outstanding exposures of the Volcanic Rocks of Mt. Persis and 107 ka river deposits of the Whidbey Formation with a glacial till below it. We will observe striking evidence of sub-glacial flow and the full range of Vashon glacial units, and look at faults and liquefaction related to the Southern Whidbey Island Fault (SWIF).
