Tumtum Mountain ...
Tumtum Mountain is a small eroded volcanic dome which lies less than two miles south of the Lewis River drainage. Canyon Creek, a tributary to the Lewis, winds past Tumtums northern base and Chelatchie Prairie, a glaciated fault valley, lies to the west. Tumtum Mountain was erupted after the region's glaciation as its volcanics lie on top of the Amboy Drift. "Tumtum" means "heart" in Chinook.
