Reports on a field excursion intended to observe ancient landslide landforms, specifically the sites where Hope River was blocked by landslide deposits that created natural dams across the river and a lake upstream.

This gield guide includes a simplified geological map of the Upper Hope River Valley, landslides inventory map, and a route map. A glossary is also provided for the benefit of non-geologists.....
