Geo 730: June 2, Day 519: Sea Stacks

Looking south from Bandon's Kronenberg County Park, I think the headland in the mid-distance is Face Rock Wayside. As I described a bit more than a week ago, the large differences in resistance to weathering and erosion in the Otter Point Formation lead to the formation of the numerous sea stacks that we see here. Another feature of note is the flat-lying elevated marine terrace to the left.
