This 90-ton boulder was carried over 500 MILES by a floating glacier into the Willamette Valley!

Throughout the beautiful, verdant Willamette Valley, you can find giant rocks that tell the story of one of the most epic events from the ice ages: rocks born as far away as Canada, carried in the floods that triggered when the ice dam holding the 500 cubic mile Glacial Lake Missoula collapsed. Next time you drive in and around Portland, keep your eyes out for these rocks, and marvel at the incredible story they tell! New to this series? Start the Lake Missoula story here on NewsBreak!

Hi everyone! :) My name is Tor Bertin, and for much of my life, I've had an immense fascination for the natural world and its inhabitants. This fascination has always driven me to share those feelings of wonder with other people. "Wonderlust" was the name I gave to that feeling. Here, I hope to bring to you improved understanding and appreciation for nature in its many forms across the world, and the human history that has existed in those places. I film my travels in a highly cinematic style, and with corresponding narration aim to both educate on the history of these places and inspire wonder for the astonishing aspects of the natural world. While here, and in your own journeys, wander in wonder.
