Geo 365: June 30, Day 181: Columnar Quarry

Columnar jointing in the walls of a defunct quarry, the so-called Quarry Cove on Yaquina Head. This quarry was active until maybe 15-20 years ago. When it was taken over by the BLM, and added to the scenic area, they decided to create an artificial tide pool area, accessible to wheelchairs. Great concept, but as we'll see in coming days, poorly thought out.
