Geo 730: May 27, Day 513: Two Tiered Town

Over the last few days, I've mentioned several times that Bandon, like many of Oregon's coastal towns, consists of an older portion right near sea level, then a mostly newer portion on adjacent elevated marine terraces. This photo illustrates that well. The cliff to the right is the remnant of the blueschist quarry where the blocks used in the construction of the jetties were obtained.
