Geologic map of the North Cascade Range, Washington


Considerable field work has been completed on the Twisp 1:100,000 quadrangle but a map of the entire quadrangle is not yet available. The following list of references may be of use to the interested reader. In addition, generalized geology of the Twisp Quadrangle can be found on the "Geologic map of the North Cascade Range, Washington"
