Geo 730: March 26, Day 450: Yaquina Head and Agate Beach

Agate Beach is at the northern end of Newport, Oregon, and south of Yaquina Head. The latter is the headland jutting out into the ocean above, which is composed of tough, resistant Columbia River Basalt. On this trip, we were here to visit the Japanese tsunami dock. As I mentioned last January, it was a much more emotionally distressful experience than I had expected.
