Geo 730: April 21, Day 477: Muddled Mix

Some sections of the basalt/sedimentary mixture at Depoe Bay seem at least somewhat stratified- not organized, per se, but not exactly chaotic either. The above shows a disorganized muddle of pillows, breccia and sediment. It's hard to tell the finer breccia material from the sediment at this distance, so I don't have a good sense of how much there really is of the latter here, and how much is purely volcanic in origin.
