March Image of the Month: Echo Bay, Sucia Island, San Juan County, WA

Our March image of a fantastical sedimentary outcrop in Echo Bay, Sucia Island comes from Geology Division IT specialist and avid sailor, David Jeschke, who took the picture on one of his many voyages. He tells us that “this is an Eocene continental sedimentary deposit of the Chuckanut formation. Wind driven waves from Boundary Pass erode the sandstone, building the ‘sculpted’ formation visible in the photo.” Amazing!
