Geo 365: August 11, Day 223: Tafoni Terrace

A final shot from Shore Acres State Park, near Charleston, Oregon. Here I'm standing on the unconsolidated terrace deposits, looking down a few feet onto "Tafoni Terrace," where the overburden has been eroded off by spray from breaking waves. Resistant versus non-resistant beds create the pattern of high and low lineations running mostly parallel to the coastline in this area.

I'm headed up into the Cascades, to Sand Mountain, today, with @GeoHols, her hubbie, and possibly a former student of hers, so the Sunday Funnies won't be happening today. No promises, but perhaps I can do a Monday edition.
