Geo 365: Oct. 2, Day 275: Klamath Basin

Standing on Dutton Ridge, looking to the south-southeast, across Kerr Valley and Sand Creek, we're looking from the Cascade Range out into Basin and Range. The typical "range and basin" topography of the latter province isn't well expressed in the photo, mainly because the enormous Klamath Basin dominates the distance. But if you look carefully at the scarps on the far side of that basin, their form is unmistakeable.
