North Umpqua Geologic Formation/Umpqua Sweets Proposed BLM Timber Sale
In June a group of UW members went up the North Umpqua to the proposed BLM Umpqua Sweets Timber Sale site to see the geologic formations endangered from the sale. We hiked to the arch, an impressive several hundred foot long formation in a beautiful setting that is threatened by logging. In awe we hiked around the massive ancient formation. Next we hiked to the honeycombs and the castle popular rock climber sites on BLM land with excellent views of the Umpqua and some peaks.
