Infant Mountains
The Olympic Mountains are young, some of the youngest on earth. Unlike North America's Appalachian Mountains that are about 395 million years old, Olympic's geology began to thrust up out of the sea only 35 million years ago. They continue to rise today. These peaks are infant. They are geology's hope.
