Whidbey Bluffs

Two more bluff shots from the field trip on the 4th. Nice contrast in geology, although both are on the west side of Whidbey Island. One is north of Ebey's Landing and consists entirely of recessional gravels. Few Puget Sound bluffs are geotechnically simpler. The other is Double Bluff, a thick pile of interglacial and glacial sand, along with enough other stuff to create a very complex slope.
