Geo 365: July 22, Day 203: Shore Acres

Somewhat randomly plunking myself down on another trip with Dana, this is the view to the north from outside the shelter at Shore Acres State Park, near Charleston and Coos Bay, Oregon. The rock is Eocene Coaledo Formation.

So, what can you tell me about the geology of this formation? My wife and I were there a few weeks ago, and I was interested by some of the different geological elements presented (we walked the beach down at Cape Arago).

I'll be chattering about the geology here for a week or two. In the meantime, on February 11-17, I posted photos from Sunset Bay, the next park north, which has very similar geology in the same formation. You can also get at it better there.
