“Monashee Mountains help define the Shuswap” by Jim Cooperman

Jim’s follow-up article on Shuswap geology is Monashee Mountains help define the Shuswap (May 30 2014).

Check out his full post!

The Monashee Mountains extend some 320 kilometres from Valemount in a narrow band all the way into Washington State and are made up of some of the oldest rocks in British Columbia. Unlike the Rocky Mountains, which are primarily made of sedimentary rock, the Monashees are mostly metamorphic rock, with some bands of granite or igneous rock. And while we often think of most mountain tops as difficult to access except by the most experienced climbers, most Monashee peaks are relatively easy to access by hiking or even driving, especially those peaks within the Shuswap watershed.
