Washington state is full of many interesting geological wonders that relate to the Pacific “Ring of Fire”. Just off the Pacific Coast is the Cascadia fault line. This convergent plate boundary is about 600 miles long and is located about 50 – 70 miles off the Pacific Coast, running north to south from northern California to Vancouver Island in southern British Colombia. When Washingtonians talked about the threat of tsunamis, it is the Cascadia fault that will most likely create the most devastation for the area.
Geologic records indicate that the fault slips on a regular basis, about every 400 – 500 years. It is capable of creating massive earthquakes of 9.0 and greater and it is believed that the last time the fault slipped was on January 26, 1700, creating a massive tsunami that made it all the way to Japan. Native Americans documented the event in their oral histories and there is local geological evidence to confirm the event along the Olympic Peninsula; part of the evidence is the Ghost Forest of the Copalis River. When the earthquake and tsunami hit, the land dropped six feet and the massive flood of salt water created a marshland of dead old growth trees, which are still standing today and hence the name “Ghost Forest”. You can explore the beauty of the Copalis River and the Ghost Forest by taking a guided tour and choose between a paddle-board, single kayak, or tandem kayak.
You can book any of our activities as either a single day trip or part of our multi-day trip options to the Moclips Beach area along the Olympic Peninsula.
