Racehorse fossil fields- update

P1040854 mark rszI visited the Racehorse Fossil Fields up the North Fork Nooksack on July 10. I have updated the access directions. If you haven’t been there in a while you may marvel at the amount of biomass that is now covering the 2009 landslide and growing on the road. It is now a foot path, in places a green tunnel. A relatively simple walk though, for 1 mile and there are still plant fossils to be found.

It was fun to see so many website subscribers up there. DaveP1040856 rsz mark

  1. I so enjoy reading the reports of trips and rocky adventures. Wish I was closer says the Vancouver(not BC)ite. My current project, determining if anyone knew about Arch Rock before Mount St Helens erupted; the feature was obscured by trees up to then.

    • OK, so looks like I have to go there! It is not too far from the final turn to Harry’s Ridge, a hike featured in my Geology Underfoot in Western Washington guide book. DT
