Geo 365: April 15, Day 105: Tidepools and Turbulence

Looking south from the point at Devil's Churn, the precipitous headlands formed in the Yachats Basalt are apparent.We're standing on a wave-cut platform here; you can see the beveled, planar surface. That surface is by no means smooth, though, and lower areas contain numerous tidepools brimming with all sorts of fascinating creatures. Along the lower middle of the photo, notice how completely and tightly packed the rock has become with mussels! Also, in the upper left corner, the Cap Perpetua  visitor center makes another appearance.
