knox mountain look out
this was are first stop here our guide talked about the places we would go and how they got there she also talked about the 4 processes/forces that built the Okanagan landforms as we know them mountain building, glacial, man kind, and the earths plate, she also told us that the lake used to be as high as the lookout.
layer cake mountain
when we got there we got of the bus and looked across the road at the layer cake mountain layered rock on top of rock, layer cake mountain shows unique layering that has not been seen anywhere else.
across from gormans mill
this was are second stop we got of are bus and and walked down along the highway along the way we found a lot of fossils and coal from cool matted rock. coal looks like think black shiny layers that crumble easily. Fossils fuels are formed from the remains of ancient organisms. Because coal takes millions of years to develop and there is a limited amount of it.
this was are last stop , we were dropped of by the bus and then walked a little ways into the forest to find the quarry, the rock we found had many layers from pressure heat underneath the ground.
