Morning Carol.

I read something about Wenatchee yesterday.  Can't remember what exactly it was but Wenatchee was number one on the list. Damn, I wish I would have not deleted the article

So often folks travel to and through a place without contemplating the forces of nature that carved and formed it.  I remember visiting Yosemite once, and looking up at those mammoth rock mountains, and trying to understand the glacial forces that helped create them.

Nature's amazing power - we see it everywhere?  He makes geology fun  - good way to teach children.

Carol,

Geology is one of the most important factors used to determine the viability of the dirt when it comes to planting grapes.  One of the wine clubs we belonged to had a marvelous event showing us dirt from different areas of the same vineyard...each area was different.  They encouraged us to taste the dirt, yes we did, and each had a distinct taste.  They determined from that which variety of Pinot (in this instance) they would plant.  The oldest dirt was slated for their heirloom variety...A

Hi James Dray ,

We do have a lot of retirees move here, especially from the Seattle area.  They come her on the weekend while they're working and move here when they retire.  My new neighbor is relocating her from St.Louis to be closer to kids.

Hi Barbara Todaro ,
Yes, it's quite interesting and actually hard to comprehend the time frame and violence that must have occurred.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat ,
As I travel and see interesting geological formations, I have difficultly visualizing the violence that must have taken place as the Earth was heaving.

That is true with the apple varieties, too, Ron and Alexandra Seigel .  In the upper valley, pears are more prolific than the apples here and in the Basin.

Carol,


I love this type of information.  It makes one understand why one plot of land thrives and another does not.
