Looks like it was a fun trip. Not so much geology though ... the geology of Cascadia is really interesting. If you like that kind of stuff, I suggest watching the lectures by Nick Zentner of Central Washington University. Besides discussing the origins of the land, I expect these lectures would give you lots of places to go in the area where you can see the rocks and land forms first-hand.

Here's a link with no particular order of lectures in mind - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQhjkem ... _rel_pause - I'd go to CWu's YouTube page and pick out what's of interest.
